UBC Press's On Campus imprint features books, essays, and other materials designed to help students successfully tackle the intellectual and social challenges encountered at university or college today. On Campus will include a range of interesting, sometimes unconventional, but always useful information and advice for students to download for free or to purchase in print. In the past, such materials were only available informally, posted online by a professor for a class or photocopied and handed out manually year after year. The purpose of the On Campus imprint is to encourage wider availability of these underground sources of wisdom and to provide a hub where students, be it their first year or last, can expect to find pertinent and accessible information on all kinds of topics related to university or college life. On Campus materials, while not peer-reviewed in the formal sense, do undergo a thorough assessment to ensure their suitability and value for their target audience.
