Hmmm, personally I believe that Western is one of the most beautiful campuses in Ontario but that's also because my sister went there. If you want a more comprehensive look, here are some articles:

That being said, some of these articles are from 2015/2016 so they may not be the MOST updated. Some universities have virtual tours (like Western) so that's also a great way to get a feel of the campus.

For the most part, University of Western Ontario. Guelph and Queen's also come to mind.

Definitely not Brock XD. You can't have a fridge with a freezer compartment because "the ice in the freezer could melt and cause a flood." Seriously.

In my opinion, UBC has one of the best/the best campus overall.  It has a regional park with hiking trails, a beach, a rose garden, a Japanese garden, and views of the mountains and ocean.  It's secluded enough from the rest of Vancouver so that it has its own "village" of restaurants, bars, and grocery stores, but still close to the Kitsilano neighbourhood and downtown Vancouver.  The location is so desirable that the residential houses on the Endowment Lands are rarely priced under $10 million.
Social life isn't as strong as Queen's or Western...  UBC is more a commuter school.  Also, as real estate is very expensive in the area surrounding UBC, there is no student ghetto which means less house parties.  But again, UBC is close to beaches, restaurants, and clubs, so I think it makes up for that.

I agree, I had to stay at UBC residence and it was really nice. Much better than other residences I have encountered in the past!
