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 have ceased for the school year. However, we are organizing summer meetings with SFU Debate.
Starting around mid-May, meetings will take place at 5:45pm on Tuesdays and Fridays at SFU Harbour Centre. Once room booking are finalized, the date of the first summer meeting will be posted here. In the mean time, feel free to join the summer meeting Facebook group!
