Looking for a place to live on campus next year?
Green College at UBC is a place like nowhere else—a uniquely west coast Canadian “micro-academy” for people with creative energy to spare. The College supports a dynamic residential scholarly community, an array of co-curricular, public, cross-disciplinary programs, and a student-led agenda for social engagement at all levels from the local to the global. Its buildings occupy a forest-edge site with a view to the ocean and mountains, 5 minutes’ walk from the renowned Museum of Anthropology and the beach, convenient for the rest of the campus. All residence rooms were fully renovated in 2013-14.
You can expect: peer support from a small, close-knit community (total 100), split 50/50 Canadian/international (College motto: “Ideas and Friendship”). Great opportunities for art, music, sport, drama, volunteering. Easy access to faculty members outside your program and to TED-calibre visitors. Amazing natural and built environment. Private meal-plan, delicious food. All the benefits of “college” living… plus a top-flight university across the road!
We expect to admit 30+ new resident members for September 2014, selected for their academic (and other) excellence, and for their interdisciplinary interests. Applicants are welcomed from all academic and professional programs (including Juris Doctor). At least 12 entrance fellowships, each worth $2000, will be awarded.
