This month, we’re announcing the Housing Action Plan blog and providing an update on the Gage South & Environs planning process. Next, we're talking to Dean Gregory, Campus Landscape Architect, about changes to the courtyard for the Health Sciences Precinct. Finally, learn more about lighting retrofits to UBC's campus parkades.

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.
Housing Action Plan Blog Wants You!
At a town hall meeting held in September, UBC President Stephen Toope called housing “the biggest challenge that UBC faces going forward in terms of recruitment and retention both of students and faculty.” The University Board of Governors’s Community Planning Task Group is leading the process of developing a Housing Action Plan for the Vancouver campus. The process was launched this spring, 2011, and will address issues of housing affordability and choice on campus for faculty, students and staff.
Gage South & Environs Planning Process
Soon Campus + Community Planning will be asking UBC’s campus community for feedback on future land use for the Gage South & Environs area of campus. Before broad public consultation begins, we wanted to answer questions you may have about the planning process for this area.
Sprucing up a fine outdoor space
The pathways and courtyard of the Health Sciences Precinct are in the midst of a major facelift that will create more memorable open spaces and help beautify the campus.
Saving on parking
Lighting retrofits have reduced energy use in UBC’s six main parkades by close to half—and led to major savings in electricity costs.
Current Projects in Focus
- St. Andrew's Hall
A Public Open House will be held to consider this project in November 1, 2011.
