A bit about Green College

Green College is a graduate residence on the UBC campus, with a mandate to promote exchange between academic disciplines at the graduate and postdoctoral levels. Since 1993, more than a thousand UBC graduate students have taken advantage of the College’s unique combination of west-coast living conditions, extracurricular academic programs, and broad array of social, artistic and recreational opportunities. As members of “a dynamic community of scholars dedicated to the multi-disciplinary ideal” (Cecil Green, founder), they have enriched their own intellectual lives and brought insights from cross-disciplinary and extracurricular conversations to bear on the work they do in their home departments and programs.

The College provides accommodation for around 85 graduate students at the master’s and doctoral levels, and another 15 places for postdoctoral scholars and visiting faculty. The maximum length of residency for members varies by program, and ranges from 1-4 years. No distinction is made between “professional” and “academic” programs; students in the Juris Doctor program are also eligible. Residency is offered incrementally in 12-month leases (“housing contract”), typically beginning in September.
