Arriving by taxi?

Your taxi driver can drop you off at Marine Drive.

Arriving by bus?

Once you arrive at the campus bus loop, the easiest way to get to Marine Drive is to walk west across campus. It’s about a 15–20 minute walk.

Arriving by car?

Once you arrive at UBC, make your way to the Marine Drive Commonsblock to check-in, get your welcome package and sign out a cart to help you with your move. 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.
