Live at Green College
Since 1993, nearly a thousand UBC graduate students have taken advantage of the College’s unique combination of west-coast living conditions, extracurricular academic programs, and broad array of social, artistic and recreational opportunities. The College has accommodation for around 85 graduate students at the master’s and doctoral levels, and another 15 places for postdoctoral scholars and visiting faculty. Students may apply for residence at the College at any stage of their UBC academic career and, on admission, sign standard UBC 12-month housing contracts. All applicants will be considered for the College’s R. Howard Webster Foundation Fellowships and (if eligible) Norman H. Benson International Graduate Student Award, worth $2000 each. For more information, and to apply to live at Green College, see here.
