UBC Campus + Community Planning is hosting an Ideas Fair on Outdoor Spaces. This is an exciting opportunity to share your ideas on possible outdoor activities and help make outdoor areas yours.

UBC is in the process of redesigning the outdoor areas between Wesbrook Mall, Student Union Blvd, East Mall and University Blvd. This area includes MacInnes Field, the areas around the new pool, the existing SUB, Alumni Centre and the new SUB. This area is the heart of our campus. As we move forward with the design process, we’d like to hear from students on how you would like to use these outdoor areas.
