The University of British Columbia welcomes you to Vancouver, Canada. Nestled between snow-capped mountains and the sparkling ocean, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It offers Canada’s best climate: mild winters and warm summers moderated by Pacific Ocean currents. UBC campus is located at the tip of Point Grey, away from the noise and traffic of the city, and around 20 minutes by car or transit from downtown Vancouver.

GETTING TO UBC Campus from the  Vancouver International Airport (YVR):

From the airport to UBC’s Point Gray campus, a taxi costs approximately $25-$30. By transit from the airport, take the Canada Line Skytrain to Waterfront. Get off at Oakridge-41st station northbound. Transfer to either the #43 UBC or the #41 UBC buses. From there, you will be taken to the main bus link at UBC. For more information about wayfinding at UBC, see:
