Construction + Detours

Updates on detour routes at UBC Vancouver campus

Pedestrian route changes in the U Boulevard area: January 19 – March 1, 2017

There will no longer be any pedestrian access between the AMS Nest, New UBC Aquatic Centre and War Memorial Gym while construction on the New UBC Bus Exchange, renovation of the Old SUB and demolition of the old UBC Aquatic Centre is ongoing.

This is part of UBC’s commitment to create an outstanding academic experience supported by a complete community where people can live, work, learn and play on its Vancouver Campus.

Brock Commons Construction

Building construction will begin on the Brock Commons student residence near Chancellor Place on November 9, 2015. The 18-storey residence is expected to take 20 months to complete and is scheduled to open in September 2017.

A key objective during construction is to minimize the impacts to adjacent residential and academic buildings. For construction and detour updates, please visit the transportation website.
