Stay Safe on UBC's Vancouver campus


UBC has a strong track record of having safe campuses, and we all play a role in keeping it that way. One of the best ways to stay safe, and keep others safe, is to look out for each other.

  • You have options for getting around campus after dark:

    • Walk with a friend, classmate or colleague
    • Use AMS Safewalk, TransLink shuttles, or Campus Security services
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel in danger, or witness suspicious activity, call 911 immediately.
