Student FAQs

Welcome to all our new and returning students.

You might want to visit the Returning to Campus website, provided by Student Services. There is also useful information specific to UBC Okanagan. If you are a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow, you can find additional resources here: UBC Vancouver | UBC Okanagan.

This page contains a range of useful FAQs, links and resources to support you during your time at UBC. There is a whole host of information on various university websites and you are encouraged to visit your own Faculty website for specific details about your program.

For guidance on COVID-19 vaccines, health and safety planning, you should visit the Health guidance and vaccines section.

Below are some additional FAQs specifically for students. While we cannot answer every question you may have, we have done our best to cover the main areas you might be interested in. These FAQs are updated regularly. Don’t forget to also check out the archive of our main announcements.
