Jump Start is a week-long program designed to introduce you to the university, to let you meet your faculty, and help you make new friends on UBC’s Okanagan campus.
On August 24 and 25, you’ll have a chance to move in and get settled.

By the end, you’ll be well on your way to feeling at home on campus and in Kelowna.

“I would recommend Jump Start to every incoming student. It’s a way to get involved and get used to UBC before starting classes. You meet not only other new students, but also build relationships with profs, as well as the student leaders. It was informative as well as fun and was a great week to make me feel much more prepared as a first-year student!” – Bachelor of Arts student, Vancouver campus
