Back to School

Welcome to the University of British Columbia.

Whether you’re a brand-new or returning student, we’re all first-timers this year. We’re excited to be taking bold steps together.

The UBC experience is different this fall. But the reasons why you chose UBC are the same, and they go far beyond the physical. We are connected by academic excellence. The courage to delve deeper. The passion to become the person you want to be — no matter what.

You will find support online. Through our diverse and inclusive community, you’ll meet people from around the world, explore new ideas and connect on a human level.

UBC will support you every step of the way.

Join us in celebrating the new school year at our virtual welcome events on September 8, 2020. The entire UBC community — from students to faculty and staff — is invited to watch the Imagine UBC Pep Rally (Vancouver campus) at 11:15 a.m. PDT on YouTube or Panopto and the Create Kick-Off (Okanagan campus) at 9:45 a.m. PDT on YouTube or Panopto.

Tuum Est. That’s UBC’s motto. It is yours.

Get ready for student life at UBC.
