Friends brought us to the former faculty club, which is now a restaurant worth visiting if you're in the area of the university. Make sure you also visit the superb Museum of Anthropology.

Stayed for 4 days whilst visiting Vancouver. A very relaxed and safe environment with a unique atmosphere. A lot to see around the campus which has numerous facilities, shops, coffee and other outlets. Seemed very busy with lots of summer camps and courses.

Don't miss this! I think my mouth was hanging open much of the time. It so honors the original peoples - from all over the planet. All the carvings, weavings, etc. And the building astounds.

Lovely campus with conference facilities and guest accommodation in addition to student residences. Much construction at the moment, but still good access by bus and taxi.

There aren't a huge amount of sit-and-eat restaurants per se on the campus - there is Mahony and Sons, The Pointe Grill and a few others, but the rest are more casual/quick bite or fast food type eats.

You can use Bus 44 to get to the Faculty of Education at UBC from your corner at Thurlow and pacific street. (I cannot post a google maps link; yet it is easy to search using Google maps from your end)
