Moving In


If you are arriving from outside of Canada, whether returning to campus or moving in for the first time, please make sure you understand the rules and regulations for entering the country (see here). UBCO is offering a variety of self-isolation accommodation packages to those who need to self-isolate after arriving in Canada, or due to Public Health directives.
