Updated Guidance & Resources
UBC Campus Rules
Public Health Guidance
For those who are able, we strongly recommend that all UBC community members get vaccinated before returning to campus. In BC, vaccines are available to everyone aged 5 and older, including incoming international students who can receive their vaccinations after arriving in Canada. You can learn more at https://immunizebc.ca.
Business Continuity Planning
Activities at UBC typically depend on specialized equipment, supplies, support services, and of course, highly skilled and knowledgeable people. In the event of a breakdown or disruption in any one of these elements, academic, research and operational activities could be impacted. As prolonged failures in some of these areas may cause risks to human life or significant harm to campus infrastructure and services, it’s important to make continuity plans to mitigate against the risk of this happening.
