People. Place. Passion.
The strength of St. Andrew’s Hall is found in its people. Faculty, staff and residents help create safe, inclusive and caring community in the midst of one of world’s finest Universities. Even former residents of St. Andrew’s Hall continue to speak years later of their affection for the people here and what it means to belong in this place.
St. Andrew’s Hall lives out its calling in the midst of a delightful and diverse residential community of UBC students (and their families) of many different traditions, backgrounds and interests. With 93 housing units at the heart of St. Andrew’s Hall, we delight in the global diversity present in our hallways.

View of UBC campus (February 2010)

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.
