UBC is one of the best places to visit in Vancouver for both tourists and locals. Just 25 minutes from downtown, the Vancouver campus is a special destination, brimming with West Coast scenery, world-class attractions and warm hospitality. Here you can lounge on a beach or cheer on a hockey game. Stroll through an ancient rainforest or wander a traditional Japanese garden. Picnic in a rose garden or dine on white linen.

We acknowledge that the UBC Vancouver campus is situated on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. We encourage visitors to learn more about the Musqueam people, their culture and their history with visits to the Museum of Anthropology and the Residential School History and Dialogue Centre, or a guided walking tour highlighting Indigenous art and architecture on the Vancouver campus.
