All international students who plan to return to the University of British Columbia (UBC) this fall without approved immunizations would have to undergo quarantine provided within the campus and in hotels provided by the university.

The university has set aside 160 units on campus for self-isolation alongside hotels to provide lodging for international students returning this fall with unapproved immunizations.

Designating the 160 units on campus for self-isolation and a ‘UBC Quarantine Bursary’ that would cover some of their costs, the university has partnered with local hotels to provide quarantine rooms for students.

However, the cost of renting the room would be falling upon the student, with the staff bringing them the meals, medications and other necessities.

UBC’s international student numbers are at 66,747, rising steeply from where it was in 2017-18 at 18,283; their diverse population has international students from China and India, its two top source countries.

International students can enter Canada via a third country from October onwards, only with a pre-approved COVID-19 readiness plan. For more information, visit the B.C. registration site and register.
