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.
Growing Campus Furniture . . .
Mushroom furniture has come to campus. It is made from mushroom roots and sawdust, and was grown in a mould to create a high performance and sustainable material.
This innovation was developed by UBC faculty, students and staff, in collaboration with Emily Carr University of Art and Design as a UBC SEEDS project.
There are many advantages to studying, working, and living at UBC’s Vancouver campus. World-class academics, a sustainable community design, the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, and a fresh ocean breeze are a just a few.
But at this time of year, one in particular always stands out: spring starts early here.
It’s not just the flowers and trees that are blooming on our campus this season. Staff, students and residents are full of great ideas to build community on campus and many of those great projects have come to life this spring.

Green Labs Energy Challenge 2016
The Green Lab Energy Challenge is taking place between April 19 and May 13, 2016. The challenge supports UBC’s Climate Action Plan and energy reduction goals by engaging and educating lab users across campus about energy conservation best practices.
Transit Update: C20 Marine Drive/UBC Loop
A change is being made to the C20 bus route to improve reliability, decrease overcrowding, and improve connections. Effective April 11, the C20 will be rerouted to run along Lower Mall (instead of Marine Drive) between Memorial Road and Agronomy Road. For trips in the opposite direction, take the C18 West Mall/UBC Loop.
Transit Update: C19 Alma/Spanish Banks
The C19 will no longer travel to the UBC Loop from Spanish Banks. Staring on April 11, those travelling to Spanish Banks from UBC need to take the 99 B-Line and transfer to the C19 at Broadway/Alma Street.
