Pre-arrival checklist

Here are some to-dos before moving into residence.

  • First things first—did you accept your offer? Residence offers are sent by email and you will want to make sure you accept your offer and pay your first instalment of residence fees by the deadline. 
  • Apply for a UBCcard if you don’t have one.
