Once you arrive
Family & guests should go directly to The Chan Centre. Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony. We ask guests to be seated within 10 minutes of the start. Once the ceremony commences, any unclaimed seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
After the ceremony
Following your graduation ceremony, the festivities continue at the Flag Pole Plaza. Here you can enjoy activities and visit with new alumni.
The world-renown Nitobe Memorial Garden and Museum of Anthropology are minutes away from The Chan Centre and Flagpole Plaza. Spend the afternoon exploring the highlights of UBC.
UBC offers many delicious options for nourishment following the ceremony, from farm-fresh fare and hip vibe at Koerner’s Pub, to artisanal stone hearth oven pizzas cooked fresh for you in minutes at Mercante’s.
