We are doing system maintenance this weekend and as a result we will not be able to issue UBCcards or manually issue UPasses; however, the UPass machines will still be available. Our office will be open to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

What are you waiting for? Use your card to pay for food and goods at:

  • UBC Food Services (including campus and meal plans), Domino’s Pizza, Mahony & Sons, Pie R2, The Honour Roll, Blue Chip Cookies, Booster Juice (UBC Marketplace location) and Browns Socialhouse (10th and Alma location).
  • UBC Bookstore, which stocks all required textbooks, stationery, computers and tech accessories, residence supplies, food and clothing.


Passport and other ID photos  are temporarily unavailable at the Access Desk until further notice.

Copy, print, scan using your UBCcard

The Access Desk is at the back of the main Vancouver Bookstore. Opening hours.
