Robson Square Open House dates set

Some programs and services available later this month

With just 84 days left before its official opening, the countdown has begun for a two-day Open House to celebrate the establishment of UBC's new downtown campus.

Beginning at noon on Nov. 30, the campus community and the public are invited to view the completed 6,000-square-metre UBC at Robson Square and take in a wide range of special exhibits, lectures and debates featuring well-known speakers. Special events begin again at 9 a.m. on Dec. 1 till 6 p.m. both days.

The establishment of a major downtown presence is one of the community goals set forward in Trek 2000, UBC's vision document.

The completion of UBC at Robson Square promises to build on the university's current involvement in the community and support its overall commitment to advance the social, cultural and economic interests of Greater Vancouver, British Columbia and Canada.

A number of UBC services and programs will be in place at Robson Square well in advance of the official opening.

The Women's Resources Centre moves into its new downtown headquarters later this month, along with the Canadian Centre for Information Technology Security, which moves from its current home at the Justice Institute.

UBC Continuing Studies is currently planning a series of joint programs, including ones to complement Vancouver Art Gallery exhibitions, and UBC Commerce's Centre for Management Development will offer a full range of executive education courses beginning Sept. 24.

The Robson Square branches of the UBC Bookstore and Library, both of which will be located near the Plaza level entrances, will be in full operation for the Open House.
