Student Activities

Law school is much more than classes and seminars.  It also offers incredible opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom in student-run publications, student government, community advocacy and the numerous social events and activities held throughout the year.

Living in Vancouver

Vancouver is one of the world's most spectacular cities, bordered by beaches and mountains and boasting a temperate climate year-round.  With a population of more than two million people, Vancouver is a city of energy and new ideas and is home to many of Canada's leading businesses. 

Vancouver is renowned for its multicultural population, diverse neighbourhoods and award-winning restaurants.  The city has a vibrant artistic and cultural scene, including theatres, concert halls, museums and galleries plus a year-round program of festivals.  Vancouver also offers an incredible array of recreational opportunities.  You can ski, hike or mountain bike on the North Shore Mountains only 30 minutes from downtown and the waters of English Bay are ideal for kayaking and sailing.  Pacific Spirit Regional Park, adjacent to the UBC campus, also offers unparalleled opportunities for running, hiking and biking on its quiet and forested trails.

UBC is situated in a park-like campus of over 1, 000 hectares on a forested peninsula overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Coast Mountain range.  A short drive from downtown Vancouver, the university is easily accessible by public transit.

We look forward to welcoming you to our campus!
