4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Parking is expensive.. $16/day. Most people were friendly and helpful. Crazy amount of construction going on.. but even the construction workers were friendly!! The buildings were occupied were older.. but it is a huge campus with so much to offer.. worth a visit.. i would suggest finding a guide (and having a vehicle to get around).

Our family made a tour at UBC, and our guides were extremely proud and resourceful. They have people from all over the world. UBC is very well maintained and organized. Remarks for the Japanese gardens.

We visited the Museum of Anthropology which is on the Univ of BC campus. What a beautiful campus. Its' on a peninsula, so while driving you get nice glimpses of the water. There is a park prior to entry. I wished that I had time to hike there. The campus was clean, neat, quiet and beautiful.

We had a few hours to kill in Vancouver and a curious high schooler so we stopped here on a whim. It is a beautiful campuus with pretty tree lined streets and a short walk to the ocean. Would love to come back and do a bike ride.

This is truly one of the most beautiful campuses anyway. It's really well kept, with lots of beautiful architecture, pathways and gardens. the view from the rose garden is spectacular and transportation is so easy. I think the students at this university are really lucky!

The grounds are beautiful. Located on a peninsula right in the heart of the city. If you are a tourist, you should go if for nothing else, just to see the truly great Museum of Anthropology with an impressive collection of First Nations totems and art.

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighborhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
