Campus Housing

The UBC Housing application process is entirely separate from the Faculty of Graduate Studies admissions process.  After you have applied to UBC you may access their online application process.

A range of accommodations is available, from dorm style housing to single-family residences.  All are within easy walking distance of the main campus. The number of applicants for all housing properties exceeds the number of vacancies available for new applicants so it is important to apply as early as possible.

UBC Residential Colleges:
·         Green College – graduate residential college
·         St. John’s College – residential graduate college with an international focus
·         Vancouver School of Theology, Somerville House
·         MBA House – graduate student housing

Off Campus Housing

Off campus accommodation in Vancouver can be expensive and particularly difficult to get later in the summer. Plan to arrive in Vancouver early if you need to rent off campus. For more information on off campus housing click here.
