Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

With the spread of COVID-19 globally and the risk that poses to travelling students and faculty, UBC has made the difficult decision to cancel the Vancouver Summer Program for 2020.  We hope that we will be able to welcome you to UBC in Summer 2021.  Applications will open in Fall 2020.

Flight, Accommodations, and Roommate (FAR) Form

Students cannot commence “Step 3: Flight, Accommodation, and Roommate Form” until they have received their Visa/eTA (if applicable) and their e-receipt.

The FAR Form will request for the following information:

  • Vancouver YVR arrival and depature flight information
  • Preferred roommate information 

We use your flight information to arrange bus shuttle schedules for airport pick-up and drop-off services. We recommend you purchase refundable flight tickets in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Students will have the opportunity in the Flight, Accommodation, and Roommate (FAR) Form to request one other student of the same gender that they want to be in the same unit with. All efforts to keep students with their preferred roommates will be made, however we may not be able to fulfill all requests. Students will receive their exact room assignment closer to the program start date. Please refer to the housing guide and video below, and the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on accommodation.

Details and further instructions to complete the FAR Form will be released in early 2020.

FAR Form Deadline: May 11, 2020*
