Other than for conferences at UBC, this is a convenient place to stay only if you have a family member interested in attending UBC and taking a campus tour. Visitors planning to arrive on a Sunday should be aware that very few of the university's restaurants, cafes, and bistros are open on Sundays. The nearest places to eat outside of... More

I like to go to rose garden for sunset with ocean view. Restaurant choices not that great near campus ,need to drive out to 4 th street for more delicious food. However,can enjoy... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a suite overlooking the (mainly empty) car park so although we heard a little traffic noise from the adjacent road it was fairly quiet overall. Suite was spacious and fairly well equipped - coffee maker, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery and glassware for 4 people, dish towels and dishwasher tablets, pots and pans but not... More

If you have no car and have to stay at UBC, then ok, stay here. Otherwise there is a lot of accommodation in other areas with much better value. Our room looked at the UBC bus loop which guaranteed both noise and air pollution. Without air conditioning, you have to keep the windows open and get woken up by loud,... More

This is about the only reasonable choice to stay if you want to be right by the UBC campus, barring a couple of always sold out B&Bs/hostels. Have now been there 3 times. Positives: pretty well appointed, well maintained, well located (for UBC). Actually a bit of design flair, though clear to see that flair was kept to a moderate... More

We've stayed at West Coast Suites several times in the past two years. As the only on-campus hotel, it is fabulous for UBC parents. Rooms are nice-sized, include full kitchens, and very clean. The staff is super nice, and parking is inexpensive!

It was handy to be able to stay at UBC as our son was about to start an exchange year and he had a few meetings and things to sort out on the campus. But if you want to visit the city and don't have a car, it is a 30 min bus ride,though on the plus side, the bus... More

We are sorry to hear that your room was not made to your expectations. We appreciate your feedback and will share your comments with housekeeping for improvements. Many guests chose our location for its convenience to conduct business with the university. With our campus just outside of downtown, it does take a little bit more time travelling by transit. In...

Only thing really good about this hotel is the location on the UBC campus. We had our daughter staying in the same room and using the pull out couch. The pull out had sheets and only a thin blanket. When we asked for an additional blanket they brought up sheets and then told us that is all they have. We... More

Contemporary well-equipped, spacious, clean suites. Good kitchen with all the basics. No AC, so especially the south facing units get hot in summer. There is a large bus station (central station?) right across the hotel building. Those rooms facing it get quite a bit of noise, so you should try to avoid these. I think they have suite numbers less... More

Stayed here the night before a popular half marathon in Vancouver. Room was at a premium (Vancouver in the summer and on the weekend) but not as bad as other places in Vancouver.

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.
