Where to begin
You’re about to embark on one of the biggest adventures of your life. Fortunately, we’ve got the resources you need to stack your new-student toolkit.
I’ve been admitted, now what? First, follow these eight steps.
UBCO Events & Activities
The official Okanagan campus identification card for UBCO students, faculty, and staff. For students who are not attending classes on campus, you may not need a physical student card just yet—instead, apply for a distance education library code to get access to online UBC Library resources.
Athletics & Recreation
Grab a bleacher seat and cheer on the Okanagan Heat or visit the Hangar Fitness Centre for a drop-in yoga class or solo workout.
Will you be commuting to campus during your time at UBCO? No problem. We’ve got Collegia—student lounges with couches! They’re great places to relax, chat with friends or catch up on studies between classes.
Where to eat
Made-to-order sandwiches, spicy samosas, or sushi on-the-go – there are plenty of food options at UBC Okanagan. Some food spots also tailor their menus with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free and allergy-aware choices. And did we mention there is usually a daily rotation of food trucks?
UBCO has several residences that make up our housing communities. Traditional single rooms, connected rooms or shared suites and townhouses are available, with options for meal plans or cooking for yourself to meet the your individual needs.
