We are in final preparations for Workday and the Integrated Service Centre going live on November 2.

Housing for UBC employees

UBC's Housing and Relocation Services team can offer help in finding housing for newcomers in Vancouver or Kelowna, including reduced-rate and market-priced housing options on UBC's Vancouver campus.

Helping newcomers find a home

UBC offers online and relocation team resources to help newcomers, including foreign employees, find a place to live.

The employee section of UBC's Human Resources website offers a wealth of information on housing, moving and relocation to Vancouver. The following pages are available on the main site for faculty and staff:

Help from our Housing and Relocation Services teams

We can link you to faculty/staff rental programs, faculty loan programs, off-campus neighbourhood information, realtors and more. We can also talk to you about relative commute times from different parts of Vancouver or the Kelowna area, and help you make sense of which neighbourhoods and amenities might work best for you and your family.

Reimbursement from the central relocation fund

The Central Relocation Fund is the UBC fund that supports eligible faculty and senior management moving to Metro Vancouver to work at the Vancouver Campus or to the Kelowna area to work at the Okanagan campus. The amount of reimbursement from the fund depends on where the individual or family is moving from and on the number of dependents relocating. Learn more about the central relocation fund
