The entrance fee includes all the money you will need to bring for mandatory expenses - i.e. fobs, any registration fees, etc. In the notes here, any costs will be broken down so you know what you're getting from it.

Registration is $20, but each group will need to put an additional $20 Deposit down on a keyfob to access the building.

Please bring your own laptop and software.

Although internet access is available for downloading development tools, it is recommended to have one or two development tools already installed on your machine before hand to minimize losing time due to installing your required programs.

Our on site security is campus security and doors only accessible by participants and UBC Students.
