Consistently ranked as one of the best places in the world to live, Vancouver is a young, vibrant West Coast city that is home to 2.5M people in the Metro Vancouver area and growing.
The third largest city in Canada, Vancouver is deeply influenced by its position as both gateway to the Pacific Rim nations of Asia as well as the environmentally sensitive, technology-driven entrepreneurship of the Cascadia region of Oregon, Washington State and British Columbia.
Living in this place is an incredible and unforgettable blessing. Check out the video below to find out why!
The University of British Columbia, established in 1908, is one of Canada’s leading universities and is ranked in the top 40 universities in the world, and among the top 20 public universities.
Home to 54,000 students from over 150 countries around the world, UBC is a dynamic, global village in which to live, study and grow.

UBC’s motto is “A Place of Mind.”
In the “west wing” of the UBC campus sits the theological neighbourhood – home to schools of theology and graduate residences for all UBC students. St. Andrew’s Hall is The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s College at UBC.
We are proud to share the neighbourhood with such fine neighbours as the Vancouver School of Theology (Anglican Church of Canada, The United Church of Canada), Carey Centre (Baptist) and St. Mark’s College/Corpus Christi (Roman Catholic).
Together, we help create a corner of campus that is indeed a place of mind, body and spirit.
