Location, Parking, Lodging & Dining 

Conference Location

The conference will be held in the Great Hall on the 2nd floor of the AMS Student Nest (, 6133 University Boulevard on the campus of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC. The main stairs into the building face East Mall. If you enter there and proceed more or less straight ahead to the elevators in front of you, it’s one floor up to level 2. Turn left out of the elevator and walk to the end of that hallway. We’ll have signs at various points.

Eating on Campus

For information on the eateries on campus on Saturdays and Sundays Visit:


There are several nearby parking lots on campus. Some have greater restrictions. In our experience the most convenient for the weekend is North Parkade, 6115 Student Union Blvd. It’s less than a 5 minute walk to The Nest. Rates at North Parkade and most other lots at UBC are $8 after 5 pm (until midnight) on Friday and $10 all day until midnight on Saturday and Sunday.(**Subject to UBC pricing/changes -NB: Umbrella or good rain jacket recommended. Weather can be wet and cool in November.)


Many out-of-town visitors will be checking out Airbnb (–Canada) There are several visitor accommodation options on the UBC campus: Carey Centre ( is very reasonable, Triumf House (  and West Coast Suites ( are more expensive. The website below lists several other options, including the above, except for Carey Centre.

Note: Accommodation is limited in these on-campus locations. Quick action recommended. Hotels: Because UBC is at the end of the road in a residential area of Vancouver, there are no hotels nearby. West Broadway has very efficient bus service to UBC (#99) and the Park Inn and Suites, 898 West Broadway ( is reasonably priced and may be the handiest.

(*Dear Americans: Note that your dollar is much stronger than ours. For eg,. $149 Canadian is only about $115 U.S.) Be aware that the downtown business core of Vancouver, where most of the big (and more expensive) hotels are, is over 12 km (8 mi.) from UBC, though there is good bus service from downtown to UBC – about 45-50 minutes.

Hostels: lists a dozen or so hostels*


*Note: Vancouver is very safe as big cities go, though parts of the area known as the Downtown East Side are run down and may be dicey. The centre of the Downtown East Side is around the intersection of Main St. and Hastings St. .
