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.

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. We encourage you to start by reviewing our Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you still have questions or concerns, please connect with the UGO during business hours by:
