UBC Faculty, Staff and Students

UBC Library offers classes, orientations and tours for UBC students, faculty and staff.

  • For faculty wanting to book a Library instruction workshop or tour for a specific UBC credit course, contact the appropriate subject librarian.
  • For faculty, staff or students wanting to book a tour of a specific Library branch for a UBC group, activity or event, contact the Library branch.

In order to ensure adequate planning, all classes and tours must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance. While the Library will make every effort to respond to requests for classes and tours, we may not be able to fill them all. If we are unable to fill your request, we will do our best to refer you to relevant resources for your class, tour, orientation or event.

Prospective UBC Students

UBC offers walking tours to prospective students and their families. These tours, led by Student Ambassadors, will show you places of interest across campus - including the library - while providing fun facts and information about living and learning at UBC. Tours are offered year-round at both UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan. If you are a graduate student interested in joining us for a campus tour, please contact Student Recruitment & Advising to register for a campus tour. Teachers and counsellors can request a school group tour by creating an account or logging in to youbc. Once you've logged in, look for the school group tours link.

Upon request by teachers, UBC Library also offers classes and tours to prospective UBC students in grades 11 and 12 from May through August. Contact the appropriate branch/division head to request a class/tour.
