Indigenous Students Collegium

Do you self-identify as an Indigenous student at UBC Vancouver? If so, UBCV’s two Collegia — UBC Collegia and the Vancouver Indigenous Students’ Collegium (VISC) — are designed for you to ask peers and upper-year students questions, access resources, and enjoy social events together.

First year Indigenous students are encouraged to participate in UBC Collegia and Indigenous students at all levels are welcome at VISC.

During Term 1 of the 2021 Winter Session (September to December), VISC will be hosted in the Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall. It will then return to the newly-renovated VISC space in the Longhouse for Term 2 (January-April).
