Accommodation at UBC
Conference attendees need to arrange their own accommodation in Vancouver.
We highly recommend staying on campus because of the proximity to the meeting space (no-carbon commute). Staying on campus (a community of over 60,000 people) is not only convenient, it also provides easy access to Pacific Spirit Regional Park, Wreck Beach, and the UBC Botanical Garden, among other attractions.
We have reserved a variety of on-campus rooms which are listed below.
Rooms have been reserved for the nights of June 17 - 21, and COCE attendees can also book rooms for 3 nights before and/or after those dates at the same rates, depending on availability.
Room rates do not include 5% federal goods and services tax (GST) and 8% provincial sales tax (PST) which will be added.
Please note that breakfast is NOT included. Please consult UBC's campus amenities for places to eat, and/or pick up a few breakfast items to keep in your room, all of which have kitchens.
Overnight parking is available on a first come, first served basis for C$16+tax/night and can be bought when checking in.
Bookings may be made by presenters and anyone else who has registered for the conference. You must be logged in to access the booking link at the bottom of this page.
