UBC is beginning to plan a new neighbourhood in the area around Thunderbird Stadium, and we want your input and ideas to help shape this process. Between Sept. 28 to Oct. 22, share your insights on living, working, studying and playing at UBC. Your experience can help guide our planning decisions.
The new UBC Bus Exchange located off Wesbrook Mall at University Boulevard partially opens on March 6. Bus stops from the old bus loop, including the 99 B-Line, will relocate temporarily to Wesbrook Mall on March 6.
Impacted bus stops include the 25, 33, 41, 43, 49, 99 B-Line, and 480. The stops will relocate until construction of the new UBC Bus Exchange is completed in May, 2017. The 99 B-Line stop will move to the entrance of the new UBC Bus Exchange.
The sidewalks along Student Union Blvd and Wesbrook Mall are now closed. Detour routes around the Student Recreation Centre and new Aquatic Centre are provided as shown in the map. The old bus loop is the site of the future Gage South student residence.
Help re-design of one of UBC’s largest public green spaces!
UBC is re-designing one of the University’s largest public green areas, Library Garden, located between the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and Koerner Library, between Memorial Road and Agricultural Road. Part of the oldest area of campus, the Garden plays an important role in telling UBC’s story – through the physical design of the space to the types of activities that take place there. The Garden will also be home to the new Indian Residential Schools History and Dialogue Centre.
Sept. 28 – Oct. 12, we are seeking input from the campus community on what is important to you about this area of campus and what opportunities you see for its future.
Join the conversation and help shape one of the largest public green areas on campus by taking the online survey or attending a public open house:
Open House 1 – Oct. 1, 11:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m., Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (2nd Floor Foyer)
Open House 2 – Oct. 8, 11:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m., Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre (Main Lobby)
