Do you self-identify as an Indigenous student at UBC Vancouver?

2022/23 Advisors

If so, UBCV’s two Collegia — UBC Collegia and šxʷta:təχʷəm  — are designed for you to engage with peers and upper-year students to ask questions, learn about resources, and enjoy social events together.

First-year Indigenous students are encouraged to participate in UBC Collegia, while Indigenous students at all levels are welcome at the šxʷta:təχʷəm (hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓: home away from home) student space, located at the Longhouse.
