Privileges After Retiring

Retiring from your position at UBC doesn’t mean you have to retire from campus life altogether. See below for the many privileges offered to UBC retirees.


As a retiree, you are entitled to a library card. Emeriti and retired staff can obtain a UBC library card online.

UBC Aquatic Centre Pool

25 Year Club Members: If you are a member of the 25 Year Club, a four-month pass to the UBC Aquatic Centre is just $70, or $2.75 per admission. (These rates are subject to change, so please check with the Aquatic Centre directly.)

Other Retirees: If you are not a member of the 25 year club, and are over age 55, you are eligible to pay senior rates. Contact the UBC Aquatic Centre at 604-822-4522.


When applying for parking permits, you must bring with you:

  • vehicle insurance papers
  • your valid driver’s license
Please note that all outstanding parking tickets must be paid before a permit will be issued. Questions regarding retiree permits may be directed to Parking Services at 604-822-6786.

Professors Emeriti: Emeriti faculty are eligible for complimentary parking permits, which will provide the same parking privileges as active faculty and staff. To obtain your parking permit, apply in person at the Parking Office. When you apply you must bring your letter from Faculty Relations with you.

25 Year Club Members: For eligibility, application, and other details regarding complimentary parking for 25 Year Club members, please visit our Guidelines page.

Other Retirees: If you are not a member of the 25 year club and are retired from the University, you may obtain an Associate Decal from the Parking Office. This decal entitles you to parking at a reduced rate in the parkades for $8.00 a day, taxes included. You may also purchase prepaid coupons to use with your Associate Decal.
