UBC Safe Vancouver App

Last updated: October 12, 2021

Campaign overview

The health and safety of students, faculty and staff is top priority at UBC. To support a higher level of personal safety and provide relevant and easily accessible safety and security information to campus users, UBC’s Safety & Risk Services team has launched a mobile safety app platform for the UBC Point Grey campus called ‘UBC Safe Vancouver’.

We would like your help with promoting the launch of the app and the COVID-19 feature, and encourage the campus community to download the app and use it.
