Place Vanier Overview

vanier1 vanier3 Place Vanier Residence
You want to live on your own but you want some of the conveniences of home. You want space and time for studying but time with friends as well. You want to get tuned in to university life, but still be able to work out, practice your music or learn a new hobby.

You'll find that perfect balance at Totem Park and Place Vanier. The communal accommodations and special orientation programs will help smooth the transition to your new life at university. And you won't have to cook for yourself.

Almost everyone living in Totem Park and Place Vanier is new to UBC: either a first-year student, a transfer student from college or another university, or an international student on an exchange. You will have a lot in common with the people on your floor, in your house and in your residence.

You will be surprised at how quickly you will make friends with others on your floor. In no time, this group of strangers will become your network of friends, study buddies and teammates. You will always have someone to walk to class with, someone to talk to, someone to laugh and hang out with.
