The UBC campus is a sight to behold. It offers nature perfectly intertwined with infrastructure. Although there is a lot of construction, as the campus expands, it doesn't take away from the natural beauty of its surroundings. I recommend visiting the beach, botanical gardens and the museum!

Parking used to be easy and fairly inexpensive. Finding a place to park, near where you plan to visit, is complicated for visitors who have not been in the area for a few years. The University and it's leaders have little interest in having alumni revisit the campus by not providing reasonable parking for people who do not live in... More

As we weren't having enough time to go to Victoria, we decided to spend the entire day walking around on this huge campus! The building are nice and compared to Europe, all buildings are opened during summer, including their nice student library.

We had a pretty good day wondering around UBC. The MOA was great. There were a few playgrounds scattered around for the kids. It was a saturday in summer, so we had a little trouble finding a place to eat. But otherwise it was a lovely day.

We drove around the UBC campus - it's beautiful and so scenic. We stopped at the bookstore and purchased a couple of sweatshirts, lovely buildings - worth a visit.

Not bad!! If you like exploring campus when you visit a city then you will love this one if you dont, then you will enjoy your day anyway because there are many things to do there, ( beaches) museums, etc. However from my point of view it is a bit expensive to be a student zone!! But you can get... More

A very impressive sprawling campus with world class amenities. The whole university campus is inter spaced with housing blocks and spread over a large green space.

UBC is like a small City.... it can be easily accessed by car or bus and the campus is walkable once there. Parking is pricey but look for street parking. A favourite spot is the Rose Garden by the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts....great view... Koerners Pub is close by.
