What to visit on campus and nearby

Nitobe Garden

The Botanical Gardens

The Rose Garden

The Nest (Student Union building)

The Aquatic Centre

The Beaty Museum

The Belkin Gallery

The Museum of Anthropology is undergoing seismic upgrades so will probably (and unfortunately) still be closed in 2024.

The UBC Bookstore is rather light on books (sigh) but has plenty of souvenirs.

Beaches and parks nearby: Wreck Beach, access only by very steep stairs close to campus. A popular nudist beach.

Spanish Banks, Locarno and Jericho beaches are in walking distance from UBC downhill, with a steep hill on return (or take the #4 bus and get off near Jericho hostel, returning the same way).

Pacific Spirit Park, large forest with walking, biking and horse trails throughout, close to campus. Beautiful and popular with Vancouverites & their dogs, but still best to go with a companion or two. See

Some Vancouver sights: Stanley Park, a very large forested park downtown close to the sea, with bike paths, trails, seawall walks, lakes, and more formal gardens. See

Granville Island, a former industrial area converted into a craft, shops, food, performance, and public market space. See

Chinatown, Pender Street Chinese shopfronts and the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Classical Chinese Garden are definitely worth visiting but unfortunately overlap with Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside which is a focal point for people suffering from addiction, homelessness, and mental health issues as well as where the majority of services for them exist.  In general, there is little danger to visitors to the area but walking around there can be a tough and very sad experience. See

Gastown, historic neighbourhood, close to Chinatown and downtown Vancouver. Some good restaurants and bars but rather touristy.
