University Hill

A Glorious Canadian Example to Endow a Glorious Canadian University

University Hill, immediately adjoining the University of B.C., is the first section of residential property which is on the market to endow the U.B.C. The tract of 108 acres is laid out in residential lots. On account of its proximity to the Varsity, its location is as far west as you can build on the Mainland of Canada. The wonderful panorama of mountains and water, which can be seen from any point, since the tract is "out of the smoke zone, in the ozone" and the fact that it is zoned and wisely restricted, makes it the most logical location for the home-seeker, and doubly attractive to everyone connected with the U.B.C. and those who have the interests of this institution at heart.

All the public utilities are in on the property -- water, light, telephone, gas, and sewers, streets and sidewalks, and the boulevards planted with trees and shrubs.

The land can be bought or leased, and the Government loans money on easy terms for building.

The transportation system at present is by bus and will be augmented as conditions require. The site is only twenty minutes from the Post Office by motor.

It is up to the student body to boost this property to their relatives and friends. The faster this desirable community of homes builds up, the better it will be for the U.B.C. Do not forget that these are "University Endowment Lands."

Any information regarding this property will be gladly supplied by:
