Due to the continued impact of the pandemic and province-wide restrictions by the order and the direction of the provincial health officer, UBC has made the difficult decision to cancel the Vancouver Summer Program (VSP) for 2021.

Please visit our VSP COVID-19 information page to stay up-to-date on the program’s response.

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 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 Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on accommodation.
