Undergraduate Office

The Undergraduate Office (UGO) is the centre of academic advising and support services for undergraduate business students on the UBC Vancouver campus.

Our goal is to help you from the moment you apply to the BCom program until you graduate, and to facilitate the best possible experience for you during your time with us. Visit us with questions about your program. We can direct you to resources to help you succeed and opportunities to enhance your experience. We’re always ready to assist you in navigating student life at UBC.

For the safety of all students, faculty, and staff, our physical office is closed. We are responding to queries through email (bcomquestions@sauder.ubc.ca) and offering online admissions and academic advising appointments. We cannot receive telephone calls at this time.

You'll find many of the answers to your questions about your program—as well as resources and services available to support you—on this site and at students.ubc.ca. If you still have questions or concerns, please visit our virtual office during business hours to ask a quick question in the chat or schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.

Academic advising

Academic advisors are available for one-on-one online advising appointments Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Before scheduling an appointment, we recommend that you take the time to review mybcom.sauder.ubc.ca and students.ubc.ca for answers to many frequently asked questions.

Virtual office  

Visit our virtual office by clicking the button above. Please use your preferred name only. Do not include your last name or student number as this private information will be viewable to everyone in the Main Room (our virtual reception area, i.e., our “lobby”).  

  • If you have a quick question or you would like to book an advising appointment, select the Raise Hand icon at the bottom of your screen. Do not select Raise Hand more than once as this will move you to the end of the queue. Please wait patiently for one of our team members to respond; they will send a direct message to you in the chat as soon as they are available.
  • If you already have an appointment, please wait for your advisor to move you to their private office for your scheduled one-on-one meeting.
