Beautiful!

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.

Just recently my wife and I had occasion to visit the campus again after so many years during which we acquired our undergraduate degrees there. It is still the same strikingly beautiful large campus that we remembered, with a thousand changes undertaken and many new buildings erected after we had graduated and pursued advanced degrees elsewhere. It's nice for us... More

The campus is on such a great location. Just the drive along that area is gorgeous. My husband graduated from UBC in 1965 and wanted to see Union College where he lived for his years at UBC. Lots of construction around there so it may not have been the perfect time to be there but nevertheless it is hard not... More

I can't imagine to find my classroom without a map. There is even a bus system to bring people from one spot to the other because it is so immense. But worth a visit. Again great views, park, flowers, beach and Museum ...If you want to see pictures and read more about go to ourstepinto.com where we give tips and... More

We stayed at the Gage residences for the first half of our trip to Vancouver and at the Marine Drive residences during the last part of the trip. We had a great stay at both the hotels and the university. I'm gonna comment about the Gage residences first. Our room there was very clean, has a kitchen with complete appliances... More

Toured the campus with our daughter, who may consider the school for her university career. Lots and lots of construction on the Mall gave the tour a bit of disjoint but still beautiful to see the grounds, the buildings and meet some of the students. Worth seeing the Nitobe Memorial Garden on campus.

I came here in search of the Nitobe gardens, and was not disappointed. The campus is quite extensive….glad for the shade trees on a very warm day!
