Campus Plan community consultation

Public consultation will help in determining the next steps in the physical evolution of UBC’s Vancouver campus. From these ideas a new vision for our spaces and places will support UBC's position as a leading global university.

Throughout the history of UBC each campus plan has been a dynamic process, changing in response to the ideas and feedback of the campus community. The essence of land use planning is shaping the future growth and development of an area (city, neighbourhood or campus) by understanding the current needs and desires of the community and projecting those forward in time. A plan provides a framework for decision-making that knits individual projects into a cohesive whole.
