Room Reservation Instructions

You must make your own room reservations with the University of British Columbia Ponderosa Towers for the May 9 – 13 Lions Leadership Institute. 

UBC has established the room reservation (link below). Students may find it convenient to print these instructions for entering reservation information on the UBC site.

UBC requires students to reserve their rooms directly with the university, NOT through the Institute.
Please use this Reservation Link.

When you open the link you will be taken to a prepared reservation form.  Dates, location, event, and group code (C180509A), have been prepared for you on the form. The "Quads," designated as the standard student housing are labeled "Budget Rooms" and are the default selection.  If you are attending by yourself (no spouse or partner) you need only press "select."

If you plan on bringing your spouse or partner, when you enter “2” in the cell requesting number of guests, the room selection block below may disappear.  If this happens, hit "search" and the selection block will return.  Please select the Standard Suite.  When all the fields are correct, press "select."

You will be shown a summary of your reservation, including taxes.  Please proceed by pressing "Guest Information and Billing."

Complete the form and note the required fields.  Also note the relevant terms of your stay as indicated:

Be sure to check the box indicating agreement with these terms!

The Institute worked with UBC regarding payment for student rooms.  UBC insisted on charging student credit cards as entered on the room reservation site.  UBC would not allow the Institute to pay for the rooms directly.  Your tuition DOES cover your room.  I will be issuing reimbursement checks at the conclusion of the Institute to each student.  I appreciate your understanding in this matter.

When the form is complete, press "Make Reservation". Please be aware, processing may take some minutes.  I made my reservation in the Cottonwood AZ library and it took five minutes or more.  I did receive my confirmation e-mail immediately.

If you have difficulty, feel free to contact me: 

UBC also has information lines available:

Reservation office phone:  604-822-1000 or 888-822-1030

Remember to have the Institute group code available: C180509A
