Whether your stay is for a few days or several months, Green College is an excellent short-term guest accommodation option for faculty, researchers or special guests visiting UBC on academic business, and for students attending short courses, conferences and workshops.

Primarily a graduate residence, the College is home to a community of 100 scholars who blend social and intellectual life through living in residence together and participating in academic programming, dining and cultural events. Resident members include graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and visiting scholars.

The College offers a peaceful yet vibrant environment surrounded by nature, just off the beaten track from the centre of campus. On the edge of Pacific Spirit Regional Park (see Contact Us), Green College is just as close to the beaches and forest trails as it is to a wide variety of campus services and attractions (see Campus Services). Those who stay in guest accommodation at Green College also benefit from the amenities of Graham House and the College’s beautiful grounds and gardens, and can take advantage of the College’s extensive program of free public lectures on a range of interdisciplinary topics (see Calendar of Events).

The College offers a range of guest accommodation. Standard and Premium Guest House Rooms are offered year-round and provide private bathrooms, internet and telephone access, and in-suite coffee and tea selections. Single Rooms and Studio Rooms are simpler and more economical, located inside our residence with bed, bathroom, and internet access. Note that you must provide your own ethernet cable to connect to the internet.

Please note that we have a limited number of rooms suitable for persons with mobility or agility disabilities. Much of the property is steep terrain, with many stairs throughout the facility. Please enquire with our staff about your reservation if you have a disability.

Those who stay in guest accommodation participate in the Green College Dining Society meal plan (on nights when meals are served) as part of their booking fee. For full details, see Meals for Guests.
