Get involved

There's no shortage of ways to get involved at UBC. The range of opportunities are as diverse and unique as the students on this campus.

Why get involved?

It’s not just about giving – every experience you have builds valuable skills that will come in handy when you’re ready to take on whatever comes next. Getting involved in a community at UBC isn’t necessarily a distraction from your studies either. Feeling connected to others on campus will improve your academics and help you build your network.

So find a way to get involved – you’ll notice yourself change, you’ll see the impact of your work, and you’ll make this campus a better place.
