UBC Homes For Sale
UBC the short-name for University of British Columbia is an area adjacent to Point Grey, a twenty-minute drive from downtown Vancouver. The UBC campus is near several beaches and has views of the North Shore mountains. The Pacific Spirit Regional Park serves as a green-belt between the campus and the adjacent neighborhood of Point Grey and Dunbar. UBC homes located to the north of the campus are consisted of expansive older detached homes, and in recent years, many new townhouses and condos overlooking the Burrard Inlet and the Strait of Georgia were built.
UBC and the University Endowment Lands are not within Vancouver’s city limits, and as such UBC is policed by the RCMP rather than the Vancouver Police Department. However, the Vancouver Fire Department does provide service to UBC under a contract. The Vancouver campus’ street plan is mostly in a grid of malls. The Lower Mall and West Mall are in the southwestern part of campus, with Main, East, and Wesbrook Malls northeast of them.
