Weâ€™re glad youâ€™re here to explore the benefits of residence living at UBC Okanagan.
Residence is much more than just a place for your student to sleep and study. Itâ€™s about making connections. Year after year, students and alumni tell us that living on campus helped them become better learners and feel like part of an inclusive community.
Science is also on our side. Research showsÂ that students who live in residence tend to be more successful in their academic studies, have increased self-confidence, and develop stronger life skills compared to students who commute.
Weâ€™re committed to providing services and amenities that create a healthy, safe and vibrant living environment in support of academic achievement and personal growth.
â€śWe were extremely impressed by how organized and efficient move in day was. Student volunteers were friendly and helpful.â€ť
â€śWe went to the parent information session and found it was helpful and re-assuring. Excellent tips.â€ť
The Parent Conference at UBC Okanagan is a fun, informative, and constructive introduction to campus resources and a great way to explore support strategies for your studentâ€™s success. Registration is required.
