Aligning Building Access Hours - Pilot Project

As part of keeping our campus safe and secure, UBC is standardizing building hours for 2021/2022 Winter Term 1. Buildings will be open to the public Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. These standard hours will be assigned to approximately 70 buildings on the Vancouver campus, that fall into the categories of academic, research, or administrative buildings that service the operations of the University. Ancillary buildings, such as UBC Athletics, UBC Aquatic Centre, Bookstore, etc. are not included at this time.

HVAC in Learning Spaces

UBC established a COVID-19 Heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC) working group to review and consider implementation of technical recommendations to enhance building ventilation systems and reduce the risk of airborne infectious aerosol exposure in UBC owned and operated buildings. The HVAC working group has created a detailed evaluation summary of UBC learning spaces, available here: https://facilities.ubc.ca/hvac
