UBC offers a variety of single detached home options for homebuyers who want to take advantage of a unique opportunity to live, work and learn in a truly integrated campus community.
At the bottom of this page, you will find listings and can view homes for sale in each of the five residential UBC neighbourhoods.
Freehold Single Detached Homes
The majority of single family, detached homes in UBC are located on the University Endowment Lands (UEL) and they are all Freehold.
The UEL is an unincorporated area surrounding UBC. The UEL is part of Metro Vancouver and while sometimes considered part of Vancouver (for example, Canada Post uses Vancouver for UEL addresses), the governance arrangements for these three areas are different.
UBC Homes are administered by a partnership between the University of British Columbia and the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA), with the UNA providing most municipal functions. The UEL is administered directly by the province and landowners pay their property taxes directly to the provincial government. In a 1995 referendum, UEL residents voted against establishing a municipal governing body.
The five neighbourhoods in which to purchase homes are: Hampton Place, East Campus, Hawthorn Place, Chancellor Place, and Wesbrook Village. You can view where the properties are located by clicking the "Map" tab below, and you can search the properties by price or new listings.
