More Information on UBC
Occupying a dramatic waterfront promontory on the city’s West Side, the University of British Columbia campus is studded with museums, gardens and attractions. Add public art, a full menu of eateries and a couple of great performance spaces, and you’ll have more than enough for a full day out – so long as you know where to go.
