The Centre for Accessibility provides support and program initiatives designed to remove barriers for students with a disability or ongoing medical condition. It provides a variety of supports for eligible students, including academic accommodations such as exam adaptations or the production of alternate-format material. They also provide non-academic services including mobility training and priority placement for on-campus housing.
If accessing childcare is an important consideration when deciding to come to UBC Vancouver, contact UBC Child Care Services and let them know you are looking for a space(s). Students who self-identify as Aboriginal may be eligible for priority placement. Even so, the wait-list can be long, so it is good to contact them right away.
Other options exist in the broader community, some of which are listed here.
Living on campus is a great way to get fully immersed in the UBC experience, including its beautiful natural surroundings.
As a self-identified Aboriginal student at UBC Vancouver, you are eligible for priority access to housing within the University’s residence system. In order to benefit from priority access as a newly-admitted undergraduate student who identifies as an Aboriginal person of Canada, your application for Winter Session Residence must be received by May 1.
Note that first-year students can open a residence application when applying to UBC, but must have a minimum course load of nine credits per term.
If you have questions about residence, eligibility, deadlines, or the application process, including fee, contact:
