UBC’s campus is situated in Vancouver, on Canada’s West Coast. Vancouver is widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in North America. It is located on the edge of the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by mountains.
The densely populated Greater Vancouver region (which includes neighbouring municipalities) is over 2.2 million, just over half the population of the province of British Columbia.
