UBC’s Okanagan campus – located on Canada’s west coast, in the picturesque lakeside community of Kelowna – is yours to explore year-round. Visit us in person to see for yourself what makes UBC a global top 40 university, and get a taste of student life while you discover what your future here could look like.
You and your family can join us at our Okanagan campus for walking tours led by current students. Marvel at the Fipke Centre for Innovative Research and state-of-the-art sports facilities; witness the campus’s proximity to nature; and experience first-hand the Okanagan’s friendly and collaborative spirit, all while our knowledgable Student Ambassadors provide fun facts and dispense valuable information about living and learning at UBC.
UBC hosts on-campus events throughout the year for Canadian and international students. Events range from weekend-long visits that allow students to stay in residence, to interactive full-day occasions that give you the chance to connect with current students, faculty, and advisors.
School group tours
Teachers and counsellors can request a visit for secondary school and college groups. These tours are available from mid-September to mid-June for Canadian school groups and year-round for international school groups.
