UBC Wellbeing is a collaborative effort to make the University a better place to live, work and learn through a systems-wide approach to wellbeing across our campuses.
Creating the best possible environment for everyone to live, work, learn and play leads to a stronger sense of belonging and connection and a happier, healthier, more connected campus community for all.
