The facility will advance the core mission of the Arts Undergraduate Society to improve the academic, social, personal, and professional lives of Arts students at UBC Vancouver, and provide much-needed amenities to support the learning, social, collaboration and innovation space needs of a diverse Faculty of Arts student population.
The building will feature society offices, study and recreational spaces, and an art gallery. Development will be coordinated with the Brock Commons Phase 2 project.

The Arts Student Centre was previously proposed to be located within The Bosque, west of the Life Building, but has since been relocated to Brock Commons south of Allard Hall.
It is estimated that construction will take place from late June 2020 to January 2022 to complete the two projects.
What to Expect During Construction
While construction is underway residents and those in offices near the site should expect some impacts.
- The sidewalk along the east side of East Mall from Walter Gage Road to Crescent Road will be closed. Pedestrians will be detoured to the sidewalk running along the east side of Buchanan buildings. Signage will be erected to help people find their way.
- East Mall between Crescent Road and Walter Gage Road will be closed. All service, delivery and emergency vehicles will be detoured using the existing Buchanan Angled Parking lot west of East Mall.
- The existing parking lot south of Allard Hall will be mostly closed. The closest alternative parking option is the North Parkade.
