First Nations House of Learning

The First Nations House of Learning is a 'home away from home' for First Nations students studying at UBC. The FNHL works to make the University's vast resources more accessible to Aboriginal Peoples, and to improve UBC's ability to meet the needs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit. The Aboriginal portal provides links and information to all the services available to First Nations, Métis and Inuit students at UBC. Visit the House of Learning website to find information on degree opportunities, services, such as childcare and counselling, financial aid, and more.
