Getting Here & Parking


UBC’s Okanagan campus is on Hwy 97, 20 minutes north from downtown Kelowna and across from the Kelowna International Airport. When entering the campus, please follow the large orange “CHECK-IN” signs to our 24/7 Front Desk on 1290 International Mews.

ATTENTION: For guests that have stayed on campus before, the route to get to our Front Desk has changed!
Due to the permanent closure of University Way between the University Center and the Fipke building (now a pedestrian area!), the route to our Front Desk on 1290 International Mews is via the new John Hindle drive, entering campus at the Upper Campus way.



UBC’s Okanagan campus is across from the Kelowna International Airport (click here for YLW flights). Please take a taxi (around $12 one way) to our 24/7 Front Desk on 1290 International Mews. If you are staying in a Single Solo, Single Deluxe or Apartment, please ask the taxi driver to wait for you while you are checking in, so (s)he can drop you off at your residence building (these residence buildings are in the upper campus and a 10 minute walk up hill from the front desk).


Various buses stop on campus. Please click here to find your fastest route to campus with departure and arriving times. When arriving on campus (at the transit loop), walk north on Alumni Drive, then left onto University Way, then take a right at International Mews. The Front Desk is located in the second residence building on your left, called Nicola.
