For over a century, the UBC Debate Society has been a lively, competitive club dedicated to the art of debating and persuasive speaking. We offer students a wide variety of debating experiences, ranging from the casual ‘once-in-a-while’ speaker to the internationally competitive debater.

Your UBCDS experience is really what you make of it. In addition to offering an abundance of training resources, opportunities to practice, memorable (and subsidized!) competitions, we are both very social and inclusive.

Our regular meetings start on September 9th and are held on Tuesdays at 5pm (in BUCH B313) and Fridays at 4pm (in BUCH A203).
