Welcome to the U Boulevard Area Consultation

Take part in the public consultation on enhancing student experience and housing in the U Boulevard Area with open houses and an online survey.


To achieve the U Boulevard Area vision, we are updating the area's Design Guidelines with new and proposed projects that support teaching, learning, and research; enhance student experience; and provide more student housing. You may consider viewing the U Boulevard Area Neighbourhood Plan, last amended in 2015. 

Over the next several years, UBC is planning to increase the amount of student housing on campus and provide more services and amenities within the U Boulevard Area. We are seeking your input on a number of planning concepts through two phases of public consultation. In this first phase, we are seeking you input on:  

  • Housing concepts in the Brock Commons and Walter Gage areas
  • Housing and ground floor academic uses on the D.H. Copp site
  • New Arts Student Centre siting
  • Improvements to outdoor spaces

There are two ways you can participate

1. Attend an open house 

Monday, March 19

Thursday, March 22

2. Complete the online survey, open March 14 to April 8, 2018


Engagement Principles

Campus + Community Planning’s consultation processes are guided by Engagement Principles, which ensure clarity and transparency in how we define, design, implement, and conclude public engagement in our community planning processes. The principles were created through consultation with a wide range of partners including campus stakeholders, student government, and members of various First Nations communities.
