COVID-19 Safety:

  • What is the status of events at UBC?

    Events at UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan are permitted in line with public health restrictions as well as in accordance with UBC policies. 

    As public health restrictions related to gatherings and events are lifted through BC’s Restart plan, you are encouraged to review the Provincial Health Order on Gatherings and Events to understand the specific details. A Regional Health Order on Gatherings and Events is in place in Interior Health and applies to all communities in Interior Health, and a Regional Health Order on Gatherings and Events is in place in Northern Health, and applies to all communities in Northern Health.

    The Provincial Health Order on Gatherings and Events order includes specific details about where proof of vaccination is required. Event planners are required to include plans for checking for proof of vaccination of event participants, where applicable, based on the type, scope and nature of the event, and include information in their safety planning. In Vancouver, proof of vaccination is required for non-educational indoor events where there are more than 50 participants. In the Okanagan, proof of vaccination is required for non-educational indoor and outdoor events, regardless of the number of participants (see below for further details).

    If you would like to know more, or if you are an event planner, more information is available in a toolkit for event planners on the UBC Ceremonies and Events website.


If you would like to direct guests to our space, we have wayfinding information and an indoor map of St. John’s College.
