UBC’s Okanagan campus is now formally affiliated with the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS).


UBC’s Okanagan campus is an innovative hub for research and learning. The campus was founded in 2005 in partnership with local Indigenous peoples, the Syilx Okanagan Nation, in whose territory the campus resides.

It’s also home to hundreds of hiking trails, a thriving arts and cultural district, authentic farm-to-table dining, several championship golf courses, and a booming tech scene.

As part of UBC—ranked among the world’s top 20 public universities the Okanagan campus combines a globally recognized UBC education with a tight-knit and entrepreneurial community. Since its inception, UBCO has experienced tremendous growth, including an increase in research funding of 366 percent.
