Regent College is located on the campus of the University of British Columbia, one of Canada's top universities. By virtue of our affiliation, Regent students enjoy access to UBC libraries, recreational facilities, clubs, student services, and health care.
Regent’s affiliation with UBC
Regent’s founders shared a conviction that the College should relate to the university world, which is the focal point for the development of the philosophies that shape both thought and action in today’s marketplace of ideas. To that end, the College sought and obtained affiliation with UBC in 1973, thus giving its students access to a number of facilities and services of a major centre of secular learning.
