Some buildings on campus you will see the attached stickers at water faucets. If the stickers are not up in your building, Risk Management still recommends that you follow best practices when consuming water. Please see the notice below.

Hot Water Quality at UBC
Due to unexpected equipment (i.e. heat exchanger) failures, hot water quality is being monitored across campus. In an abundance of caution, we are posting notices at all hot water faucets in 56 building complexes that contain the problematic heat exchangers. To keep matters simple, rather than list all 56 building complexes, we recommend that everyone follow best practices for hot water in all buildings on campus:
- Please do not use the HOT WATER to fill kettles, for preparation of beverages, or for drinking.
- The COLD WATER has not be been affected, as it runs on a separate system.
- Hot water can—and should—still be used for washing hands, dishes, etc.
If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your hot water, please call Building Operations immediately at 604.822.2173 so we can identify and repair the issue.
