NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
UBC, VANCOUVER

The University of British Columbia (UBC) neighbourhood, located between Vancouver and Burnaby, offers a unique lifestyle. The neighbourhood has a high population of UBC students, and this is evident in the amenities and housing options available in the area. UBC has one of the youngest populations in the province, which likely explains the plethora of activities and recreational resources found in the neighbourhood. While often considered part of Vancouver, the neighbourhood is actually outside of the city in a portion known as the University Endowment Lands, which has no municipal representation. This means that the area is often serviced by provincial (or federal) departments, such as the RCMP, rather than City of Vancouver departments.

UBC is located southwest of downtown Vancouver, near English Bay and Howe Sound, on the western most tip of the Burrard Peninsula. The neighbourhood is made up of eight distinct smaller neighbourhoods, which include Hampton Place, East Campus, Hawthorn Place, Chancellor Place, Wesbrook Place, North Campus and University Boulevard, as well as the University Endowment Lands. The neighbourhood is surrounded by green space to the east and water to the west. UBC extends from SW Marine Drivein the west to Blanca Streetin the east, and NW Marine Drivein the north toSW Marine Drivein the south. The area is heavily populated by UBC students, due to the university’s presence being a large part of the neighbourhood.

Neighbourhoods

Pollution/ Noise

There has been interest in promoting other forms of transportation, such as cycling, to help reduce some of the air pollution caused by vehicles. Noise can be an issue in the residential areas closest to the main roads in the neighbourhood.


Crime Rate

Because UBC is located on land that does not fall within a particular municipality, it is serviced by the RCMP, rather than the Vancouver Police Department.
