Our Online Communities

  • Reddit Community (r/UBC)


    This community on Reddit has grown to support over 90,000 users (as of 2024). These users include students, professors, staff, and other community members.

  • Lemmy Community (c/UBC)


    After Reddit made harmful changes in 2023, a backup community was created. This decentralized and open-source alternative, managed by a non-profit, will guarantee that the UBC community has a space to connect, share, and discuss.

This wiki is an open source community project, and it is being built through the collaborative effort of many cool people in the UBC community. We welcome and encourage contributions!

If you would like to work on a longer section, we recommend that you send us a modmail on Reddit or message Otter on Lemmy before getting started. We can provide guidance, or let you know if someone else is already working on it.
