Family room upgrades are available in limited numbers. These rooms must be requested at the time of registration.

  • Each Ponderosa Family Suite consists of four bedrooms each with a single bed, a kitchen and living space, two bathrooms. Maximum occupancy is four people (ages four and up).
  • Upgrade fee is an additional $25.00/person for the week.
  • Registrants choosing a Ponderosa Suite must ensure that all four rooms are filled with guests that have paid registered for the games.
  • If you have fewer than four paying guests, the additional upgrade fee will be $325.00/week for each vacant room. For example, if you have a family of three, the three registered guests will each add an additional $25 to their registration fees, PLUS a charge of $325 to make up the vacant fourth room.
  • All meals, other than special events, will be served at Orchard Commons.

Please note:

  • UBC Residences considers anyone ages four and up as a person that counts towards total occupancy.
  • There are a limited number of pack and plays available. Please make this request as early as possible.
  • Please note for families with young children, the single beds in Orchard Commons are quite high off the ground. There is also limited space in the single rooms for a crib.

For guests who would like to extend their stay at UBC, rooms are available for three nights before and after the Games. These are the rates, all subject to tax:

  • Orchard single rooms with private bath - $89/night (single occupancy)
  • Orchard single rooms x 2 with shared bath - $119/night (this is two single rooms connected by a shared bathroom, double occupancy)

Please make a request for extra room nights on the registration form, but you will not be billed by CTA for these rooms. Payment will be made directly to UBC when you check-in.

Please keep in mind the registration fee is heavily subsidized by the Canadian Transplant Association and the generosity of our sponsors. As such, there is no additional discount, subsidy or scholarship available. Many of our athletes in the past have had great success fundraising in their communities to offset the costs of attending the Games. A sponsorship form to assist with your fundraising efforts is available to download HERE.
