Getting to Exchange residence on Move In Day

Check out the arrival instructions for Exchange residence below—and don’t miss this orientation video for students moving into upper-year residence!

Arriving by taxi?

Your taxi driver can drop you off at Exchange residence, and you will check in at the residence front desk.

Arriving by bus?

Once you arrive at the UBC Bus Exchange, go to Exchange residence to check in.

Arriving by car?

First off, GPS is great for getting to UBC, but once you’re close to campus, follow our signs instead. We’ve posted them at key points all over campus.

Step 1

Once you arrive at UBC, make your way to the North Parkade, where you will be directed to park in a holding area on Level 1.

Step 2

After you park, you’ll be directed to the Exchange residence front desk, where you will check in and get your welcome package. Leave your belongings at your car for now, but don’t forget to bring your government-issued photo ID and be prepared to wear a non-medical mask.

Step 3

Return to your car and wait for notice to drive up to your residence building (once an unloading spot is free), where you can sign out a cart, unload and move in.

What if I arrive late—or on a different date over the summer?

Arriving after 4 pm? No problem! When you arrive, go directly to the Exchange residence front desk to check in.
