Germany grad student needing a couch for a couple of days
Posted July 19th, 2011 - 11:08 am by from Hamburg, Germany (Permalink)
Hi there,

I will be at UBC to conduct my thesis at AMPEL for the next 7 months, and so far I didn't manage to find a home.
Is there anyone who could host me for a few days starting this thursday?
I would love to have someone show me around Campus before I will start on monday.

thanks for reading.

Hey Evelyn,

I've heard this is a busy time of year so you might have a little trouble finding a place. If you're in town I'd suggest heading to the weekly meeting tonight at the Wolf and Hound (as posted in the Vancouver CouchSurfers group). I'd also suggest you post to the Vancouver CouchSurfers instead of the UBC sub group as the UBC one seems much less active in the summer.

I'm staying on UBC campus for the next couple weeks. If you find yourself in dire need of a place I can offer to put you up, though it would be slightly abnormal as I'm in a hotel. I also regret that I wouldn't have time to take you around much and am not too familiar with campus. I am familiar with the nearby trails in Pacific Spirit park, however. They're very pleasant.
