Prospective Applicants:

As of May 2019, the College now has only very limited vacancies for the 2019-20 academic year. Application files that become complete in June or July, and if approved by the Admissions Committee at that time, are likely to be placed directly on the wait-list.


Green College is a unique graduate residential college that promotes a supportive academic environment through active participation in community lifeā€”from free public lectures, events and performances, to discussions around the dinner table.

The College is home to 100 graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and visiting artists and academics invested in interdisciplinary learning. Together, they form a vibrant community sharing ideas at UBC.
