All about UBC
The University of British Columbia which is only about 30 minutes from the downtown city centre of Vancouver on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. The university is situated in a beautiful setting between the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Spirit Park. These surroundings offer endless opportunities to explore the forested trails, spend the day golfing, try sailing at the beach, learn about First Nations culture, take in a performance at the Chan Centre, or just sit back and enjoy the views.
