I stayed in July in the Gage Apartments. Wonderful self-catering experience with a mini- apartment, free wifi, a helpful cleaner and reception staff who knew where buses and amenities were. I was walking distance from the lovely Native American Museum and Wreck Beach. Though breakfast options were limited, I would happily stay there again.

A vast expanse nestled in Vancouver and it spreads over so many acres of land. UBC has so many buildings and courses offered. Self sufficient and well maintained.

I went to the university about two years ago while I was on holiday. There was a rose garden. The garden was beatiful because of the flowers. There were many goods of the university at a shop. I bought one of the goods a knit hat which colour was yellow. Yellow and deep blue are probably the university's colour. The... More
