UNA residents have access to the full range of services that exist for residents of other municipalities in the Lower Mainland.

The UNA maintains roads and sidewalks, street lighting, sewers, and other municipal infrastructure. The UNA also maintains recreational facilities, such as neighbourhood parks and fields, The Old Barn Community Centre and Wesbrook Community Centre, and provides a full range of recreational and cultural programming.

Waste and recycling services are available to residents through their strata corporations or building management, just as in the City of Vancouver. Business licenses and building permits can be obtained through UBC Campus and Community Planning and specialized permits are available from other sources.

Community policing for the entire University community and the adjoining University Endowment Lands (UEL) is provided by the RCMP University Detachment. Fire protection services are provided by the City of Vancouver Fire and Rescue Department through an agreement with the Province of British Columbia. Service Levies, the equivalent of municipal property taxes, are collected by UBC, which deposits them into The Neighbours’ Fund that contributes to the UNA’s operating budget.
