Providing excellent childcare options is critical to UBC’s ability to attract and retain outstanding faculty.
See the UBC Housing & Relocation Services website for information about the various on- and off-campus childcare options.
In an effort to further improve access to on-campus childcare, the Provost’s Priority Childcare Placement Program also provides a limited number of new faculty members with higher placement on the UBC childcare waitlist, in order to support strategic recruitment and retention priorities.
Faculty candidates who are interested in this program should contact the head, director or selection committee chair in the academic unit to which they’re applying. An application form can be found here. This program includes a fee premium to be paid either by the department or faculty member, with priority given to tenure-stream faculty recruits.
