Vancouver campus


UBC is monitoring how COVID-19 (coronavirus) is developing in Canada. After careful consideration, we have cancelled UBC Vancouver’s campus tours until further notice. We would have loved to meet you, but because of the global concerns around COVID-19 (coronavirus), there is anxiety about attending group gatherings at this time.

Groups and schools

Campus tour 2017

UBC’s group tours last 1.5 hours and are led by friendly and knowledgeable student ambassadors. All tours are conducted in English, so a moderate level of English comprehension is necessary.

When to organize a group tour

  • You are organizing a tour for high school students (Grades 10 to 12) or students in a post-secondary transfer program.
  • There are up to 50 people in your group.

How to organize a group tour

  • Choose a preferred date for your tour. We offer group tours at 10:30am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays only.
  • Submit your tour request at least 4 weeks, but no more than 3 months, in advance.
  • Ensure you have 1 adult supervisor (teacher, counsellor, or parent) available for every 15 students.

We do our best to accommodate group tour requests, but it’s not always possible due to high demand.

Are you part of an Aboriginal group?

UBC’s Aboriginal group tours are led by friendly and knowledgeable Aboriginal ambassadors. In addition to visiting key spots on campus, you’ll have a chance to explore dedicated spaces, services, and resources available to Aboriginal students at UBC. If you’re interested, we can also arrange a tour of the First Nations Longhouse or the Museum of Anthropology, a peer mentor session, or a faculty-specific info session.
