As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we promise to keep you informed every step of the way.

We are committed to creating an enriching experience for our students to safely come together, build community, and enjoy the beautiful UBC campus.

As we continue to navigate COVID-19, our priority is on the health and well-being of everyone in our community, and to follow all provincial health orders and guidelines. Please find below some useful quick links you can refer to for all the latest information.
