The Universities Act was rewritten in 1974 and has since been further revised. The University currently operates under the authority of the British Columbia University Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 468.
The full and unedited text of the University Act is available at BC Laws.
Changes to the University Act introduced by the University Amendment Act (S.B.C. 2004, c. 74) led to the establishment of UBC's Okanagan campus in Kelowna on April 1, 2005.
