UBC BENEFITS

UBC Clubs and Societies 


UBC’s Point Grey Campus is home to hundreds of student-run campus clubs. These clubs allow students to engage in interests outside of their area of study in order to discover and develop new skills. There are a wide variety of clubs including academic, athletic, leisure, political, performance, social action and special interest. There is also always the opportunity to create new clubs if one for a specific area of interest does not yet exist.
