Arriving by taxi?
Your taxi driver can drop you off at Exchange Residence (off Student Union Boulevard).
Arriving by bus?
Once you arrive at the campus bus loop, you’re in luck! Exchange Residence is located right at the bus loop. Just head towards Student Union Boulevard and take the elevator to the front desk.
Arriving by car?
Once you arrive at UBC, make your way to the Gage Apartments on Walter Gage Road and park in an available parking stall.
After you park, walk to the Exchange Residence front desk to check in, get your welcome package, and sign out a sanitized red 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.
Please note that Pacific Residence construction is taking place around Gage Residence, so please follow all applicable signage when walking to Exchange.
Return to your car and load up your move-in cart, get your mask ready (you’ll need to wear it inside residence today), and with your one designated helper, you’re ready to move in.
What if I arrive late?
Arriving after 4 pm? No problem! When you arrive, go directly to the Exchange Residence front desk to check in.
