Accommodation and Travel

Accommodation
Please note that accommodation is NOT included in the registration fee. We have secured a block of rooms on the UBC campus at a reduced rate for delegates. Please book by May 4, 2018 to avoid disappointment. Accommodations and rates are subject to availability after May 4.

Three options are available:

  1. West Coast Suites – These rooms include a king bed and queen sofa bed in the living room and a private washroom. The rates are based on single or double occupancy with additional guests at $25/night. Very limited number of rooms – $219/night
  2. Studio Suite in Ponderosa Commons – These rooms include a double bed in a studio room and a private washroom. The rate is based on single or double occupancy – $129/night
  3. Premium Single Room in Ponderosa Commons – These rooms include a single bed in a private room in a shared apartment (2 washrooms shared between 4 rooms) – $58/night

***We strongly encourage you to stay on campus! There are very few hotels near UBC – downtown is 30-45 minutes away by bus and the hotels are likely much more expensive. The campus is beautiful and has many restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops.***
