UBC Okanagan

UBC Okanagan opened in September 2005 as a distinctive, small  university campus. We call it an intimate learning community -- where  students interact with one another and their professors on a daily  basis, while becoming global citizens through interaction with their  community and the world.

UBC Okanagan is earning a reputation as an important, respected  centre of learning and research, enhancing knowledge creation and  innovation in the Okanagan. UBC Okanagan also offers a campus life rich  with opportunities to build cultural and social connections, to learn,  grow and express yourself. The students who choose UBC Okanagan make  the difference.  

With a goal of enrolling 7,500 students by 2010, UBC Okanagan is  growing to serve the needs of our region, increasing access to the  internationally recognized UBC degree. As our student numbers increase  and the campus master plan becomes reality, UBC Okanagan will continue  to feature small class sizes, experiential learning, community  involvement, and direct access to research activity.
