It's Vancouver. If you're into it, we've got it. You want to do body shots off strippers until 3 in the morning? Yeah, go for it. You want a place where you can legally smoke weed? We've got that too. You want to hang out, drink beer, and eat fried things while listening to metal in a dive bar? We got that. Campus is somewhat separated from downtown, but it's just a bus ride away to get to one of the more varied nightlifes in North America. There are also a variety of incredible restaurants that range from the exorbitantly expensive, to surprisingly affordable. Very few university students will be able to actually get drunk off bought drinks at a night club with any frequency, so I would highly recommend pre-drinking. If you're underage, the clubs aren't really an option, but the drinking age here is 19, so you likely won't have to wait that long. Odds are you will meet at least one person who is 19, and drinking in the dorms is all but actively encouraged. You're not supposed to have huge parties, but they tend to sort of happen anyway. In the residences every floor has a "Floor Lounge" which is a large room that has a lot of couches and tables and a t.v. and a sink and a fridge and such. These tend to host some fairly impressive parties if you have a good floor. If not, every floor has one, grab some booze and go on a party quest. Also, don't go to the frats. They suck. They are sweaty, and contain hordes of horny guys going for about six girls, most of whom are already with someone. No one wins at the frat parties, no one. They also charge way too much for beer.

The legal age here in British Columbia is 19. So if you are under 19, wait patiently hahaha. but you can always hang with your underage friends and have some fun. Every week, there will always be parties, especially Frat parties or floor parties.

FUN If You're of Age! The legal age of British Columbia is 19, so unless you have a fake ID, the most you can do is drink in the dorms or frats, which is fun most of the time but gets kind of dull eventually (especially if you're from a place where nightlife is active.) But once you hit 19, it gets really fun around Vancouver. Alcohol is pretty expensive, which is definitely a downside of the nightlife.

There are quite a lot of house parties going on all over campus and the greek village. Not many pubs on campus, but theres a great selection just 30 mins away, with great bus service throughout the night.

Avoid Clubs – Clubs and other nightlife activites are usually only for adults above the age of majority (19 in BC). Attending parties hosted at the university would be a better alternative as you would not need to arrange transport and security can be assured as no one from the outside can attend the parties.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
