Grad Student Programs

Are you a grad student? Don’t miss out on all the Residence Life events and activities just for you! It’s a great way to catch up with other grad student friends—and meet new ones.

How do I find out what’s happening?

Residence Life will deliver information to your residence unit in September and January with all the details about fun events, activities, outings, and social opportunities for grad students—all organized by Residence Life.

Keep an eye on your email inbox too! We’ll be sending you a monthly email to highlight upcoming events. Also, check the Events Calendar to find out about other Residence Life events.

Do I need to RSVP for an event?

Yes, please RSVP to confirm your attendance.

We’ll send you an invitation email prior to each event. The email will provide you the details (date, time, location and any additional information about the event) including a link to a RSVP form.

What kind of events are planned?

Once a month, all grad students in residence are invited to go on an iconic UBC or Vancouver adventure.

Past highlights include:

  • Trip to UBC’s Homecoming Football game
  • Outing to the Vancouver Aquarium
  • Evening at the VanDusen Gardens Festival of Lights
