Sustainability Tours

Tour participants learn about Sustainability Street, which demonstrates closed-loop solutions for collecting storm water and treating wastewater.

Sustainability tours at UBC are a great way to see sustainability in action. The self-guided Sustainability Walking Tour leads visitors to several spots on campus that showcase our sustainable buildings, and our commitment to innovation. Visitors can also request a guided Green Building Tour, for a behind-the-scenes look at specific green buildings. And for those interested in our sustainable residential initiatives, there’s the UTown@UBC Virtual Tour.

Sustainability Walking Tour

With more than twenty years of sustainability achievement, UBC's sustainability efforts can be seen across every corner of campus.

Explore campus sustainability with our Sustainability Walk, an experiential, self -guided tour of UBC's sustainable landmarks. The walking tour below highlights eight green buildings for you to discover. Did you know though, that UBC actually has 58 green building projects across campus?
