Move In Day

Move In Day

If you are arriving from outside of Canada, whether returning to campus or moving in for the first time, make sure you understand the quarantine/self-isolation requirements that apply to you. Learn more about travelling to Canada/UBC.

A reminder that if the Canadian Government requires you to quarantine (self-isolate) for 14 days and to self-monitor for symptoms, you cannot self-isolate in a shared unit in Upper Year residence or in a single, connected single or shared room in First Year residence and must make a separate arrangement for this period. The university is offering a variety of self-isolation accommodation packages to any members of the UBC community who need to self-isolate after arriving in Canada.
