The view is fantastic from rose garden. If i was a student there I don't think I would have gotten any homework done. The main mall is huge! Looks like an amazing place to go to school.

fabulous situated campus but best of all there is the anthropology museum , you have to see the outside with the Haida totem poles and go inside and get lost in the the collection of artefacts . Then go to the botanical garden.

UBC is a really huge campus, there are sights that you won't expect to see inside an university campus! This is the place not to be missed.

HUGE campus and not easy to get around - you can take the bus to the campus but there is a LOT of walking so only go if you're especially interested. Amazing location, out of the city on endowed lands but no notable architecture.

Got to see my girl play rugby in Canada. Easy parking right by the event. Easy to find as well. Can't wait for next year.

The UBC campus is a 'mini city' in itself, with a collection of activities such as museums and gardens for both adults, students and children.

I was hanging around there on my way back from Museum of Antrophology and Wreck Beach. Nice and calm university campus with a lot of people in there and some interesting architecture.Few buses leaving to downtown terminates from the middle of it.

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighbourhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
