Accommodation Options for your Stay

Self-isolation options for Students, Staff and Faculty

It is essential that you have a safe and clean place to complete your self-isolation period, and that you abide by all mandatory self-isolation rules. If you cannot self-isolate in your long-term or existing accommodation, you must arrange for alternate accommodation. This could be on campus in one of the options listed below, or at an off-campus hotel or vacation home.

UBC Student Housing residents moving into or returning to shared units (any space that shares a washroom and/or kitchen with another student) who must self-isolate due to travel, tracing or illness must self-isolate in a different, private space before moving into or returning to their shared unit.

If you are travelling and isolating with friends or family, contact UBC Conferences & Accommodations for on-campus options, or consider booking an off-campus vacation home or multi-suite hotel.

The Government of Canada makes frequent adjustments to self-isolation rules. Visit UBC’s Travelling to Canada During COVID-19 webpages for details and recent updates.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

The Canadian government announced quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated travellers will be eased starting July 5, 2021. If you are traveling to Canada and meet the eligibility requirements, you will not need to quarantine. You will need to prepare a quarantine plan and be prepared for quarantine in case the officer determines you do not meet the criteria to be exempt from quarantine. Travellers who are not fully vaccinated must continue to follow quarantine requirements. Be sure to review our Travelling to Canada Guide before making travel plans.

Vacation Rentals

For families, a vacation rental may be a good choice during your self-isolation period. You should inform potential hosts that you will be renting their property to self-isolate. Ask if there is a separate entrance to the accommodation, and if there are any vulnerable individuals (65+ or immuno-compromised) on the premises. You may be asked by the border officer that you have ensured that you will not be in contact with such individuals. Ask if the landlord can provide basic cleaning supplies so you can clean upon arrival. Popular vacation rentals include Airbnb and VRBO.
