An old Alma Mater, well at least for a first year. Was friendly and open in the 60's and even more beautiful today. Visit the main site lik Japanese garden, etc.

“A world of its own”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

Like many other all encompassing campuses, UBC has its own individual atmosphere. There is a great buzz about the place, and it contains the museum of anthropology and wreck beach(among other beaches). Could spend an afternoon out here just ambling around

“Great Spread!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our gem of a university is surrounded on three sides by water...and has a very comfortable, and welcoming feel to it. It truly is spread out over quite a large area. There is great bus service from many main roads that will take you to UBC. Also, there is a great bookstore there too!

“What a beautiful campus!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Not only is this a gorgeous setting, but the mix of old & new buildings, especially with the development of an entire community, now, is a delightful place to walk, visit friends, grab a bite, and enjoy some nature.

“Small City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The University is like a small city with it's own museums, gardens, shops, and housing in addition to its educational facilities. The landscaping is perfect.
