New to UBC

Here's to you and the start of your journey as a UBC student.

Welcome to your first year at UBC

Congratulations on joining a diverse community of scholars! We can't wait for you to arrive on the beautiful UBC Vancouver campus, situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people.

UBC is committed to providing a safe, supportive, and inclusive living and learning environment, with resources and services to support all students. Whether you're interested in meeting new people, pursuing a passion, gaining work experience, or more, the opportunities are endless.
