Self-isolation accommodation packages for UBC students, faculty and staff

Man talking to family on phone

All travellers arriving to Canada are required by the Canadian Government to quarantine (self-isolate) for 14 days and to self-monitor for symptoms.

This requirement includes UBC Student Housing residents arriving from outside of Canada, whether they are returning to campus or moving in for the first time.

Students moving into a shared unit (any space that shares a washroom and/or kitchen with another student) in a residence managed by UBC Student Housing, must self-isolate for 14 days in a different, private space before moving in to their shared unit space.

UBC Conferences and Accommodation (C&A) is offering a variety of self-isolation accommodation packages, on a first come, first served basis, to any members of the UBC community—UBC Student Housing residents, other students, faculty, and staff—who need to self-isolate after arriving in Canada.

These packages include a number of on-campus accommodation options operated by C&A, plus off-campus accommodation in partnership with local hotels. Note that some options include meals, while others do not.
