Take your place at UBC alongside top students from across Canada and around the world. Together you’ll challenge the status quo and push boundaries as you live and learn in a beautiful, inspiring setting.
Join us on campus for events like Destination UBC (Okanagan), and UBC Welcomes You (Okanagan | Vancouver), for a chance to find your feet on campus and make friends before the school year even begins. There are even sessions for your parents to help them understand how they can support you in your transition to UBC.
At our Ontario events, you and your parents will hear about student life inside and outside of the classroom on our two beautiful campuses. You’ll also learn about our academic programs, admission requirements, and the application process.

Immerse yourself in one of North America’s most scenic cities, or enjoy year-round escapes to one of the region’s 300 trails or 250 lakes. With small class sizes, unique campus-city partnerships, and more than 1,200 research projects underway, UBC’s Okanagan campus makes it easy to plug into a close-knit community of educators, emerging scholars, and innovative entrepreneurs.
Surrounded by temperate rainforest, majestic coastal mountains, and the Pacific Ocean, UBC’s Vancouver campus is just 20 minutes from Vancouver’s city centre.

Given Vancouver’s vibrant culture, dynamic economy, and favourable climate, it’s easy to see why this Olympic city is consistently rated one of the best places to live in the world.
