Campus Return Plan

UBC is currently planning a return to on-campus activity for 2021-2022 Winter Session. The majority of courses will be primarily delivered in-person from February 7, 2022 until the end of Winter Session, Term 2. The university is working hard with provincial health authorities to ensure the campus is safe for all students, staff, and faculty.

Visit the Campus Return Plan FAQs page.

UBC strongly encourages all members of the UBC community to get their vaccinations and requires COVID-19 rapid testing for all students, faculty, and staff, with exemptions provided for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

There will be a vaccine clinic on campus. Please click here for directions on how to get to the Covid-19 vaccine clinic.

It is mandatory to wear masks in all indoor public spaces. Protect yourself and others.

Maintaining good mental health and wellness during challenging times asks a lot of us, our colleagues, and our families. For information about mental health resources for students, faculty and staff, Click Here

Which courses are in-person vs. online?

While we anticipate courses to be primarily delivered in-person, with the expectation that students will be on campus in September, there will be a limited selection of courses available with online delivery in both Term 1 and 2.

Modes of delivery in KIN this Winter Session:

  • In-person: The course component takes place in-person.
  • Online: The course component is fully online, but all elements of the entire course may not be eligible to complete remotely. Check the Section Comments for details.
