Campaign overview

Have your UBC Card ready to access buildings in the evenings and weekends

As part of keeping our campus safe and secure, UBC is implementing a pilot project to standardize building hours for academic, research, and administrative buildings for 2021/2022 Winter Term 1. For students and faculty that have courses in the evening or weekends, we want to remind them to ensure they have their UBC card ready to access the building they are teaching or learning in. Some buildings may have restricted access for evenings and weekends.
