UBC is a large campus and it is best to get a map to learn your way around. Maps of campus are handed out at the GSS orientation. If you don’t attend it, a detailed campus map and information on campus buildings is available here.
It is important for students to pick up both their UBC student card and U-Pass. It is recommended to get your U-Pass as early as possible in order to avoid paying additional fare for use of public transit. Both cards are picked up from the UBC Bookstore.
Your UBC student card doubles as your library card. The primary library for ECE is the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, located just west of the Student Union Building.
If you do not get your tuition deferred or arranged for deduction, you must make sure that you pay before the tuition deadline each semester. Tuition is paid directly to the University and you should have received instructions on how to do this from the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
If your tuition is not paid on time, interest and/or late fees will accrue and you will be unable to register, graduate, etc., until your fees are paid.
All students are automatically added to the AMS Health and Dental plan and charged fees for it with their tuition. This is for extended coverage and is separate from MSP. You may wish to opt out of the program if you have alternate coverage, or you may wish to add a spouse or dependents for coverage. There is a narrow window in September for opting out or adding family. Vist the Health and Dental plan website for more details.
