Campus and Community Planning
As public stewards, we are accountable for ensuring that any choices made about land, buildings, infrastructure and transportation serve UBC’s core academic mission and advance sustainability.
Ideas Fair Tomorrow! Bookstore Plaza Starting at 10 a.m.
Stop by the north side of the Bookstore plaza and share your ideas about activities you’d like to see in outdoor spaces on campus with us. Planners and other C+CP staff will be there to listen and share information on Thursday, October 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.UBC is in the process of redesigning the outdoor areas between Wesbrook Mall, Student Union Blvd., East Mall and University Blvd.
Learn about – and provide input on – preliminary planned changes for University Square, The Green, the new MacInnes Field, new Aquatic Centre area and other outdoor spaces.This is your opportunity to be actively involved in the design planning process for areas that will be busy, heavily populated outdoor spaces. Your input will inform the process and help to define the future of this central part of campus.
Students who participate in the Ideas Fair have a chance to win one of four AMS gift cards ranging in value from $25-50.
Can’t make the Fair? You are welcome to submit ideas online until October 10.
Play the Fridge Magnet Game
The Achievement Square Fridge Magnet Game has launched in front of the UBC Bookstore, overlooking what will soon become one of the most vibrant spots on campus.Both the painted board and the space are yours to transform. Be creative and play the game by moving the magnetic figures on the board to fit your vision. Campus planners will be using input from the UBC community to realize a space that is defined by its users.
This interactive installation was created by renowned Vancouver artist Byron “Cameraman” Dauncey in collaboration with the UBC Social Ecological Economic Development Studies (SEEDS) Program and UBC Creative Writing.
