No hot water available at the Student Recreation Centre

UPDATED March 15, 2017 at 2:30PM: Hot water is now working at the Student Recreation Centre

We are currently experiencing issues at the Student Recreation Centre with our hot water. There is currently no hot water available in the facility. We are looking into this problem and will post an update when we can. Apologies for any inconveniences this may cause.

Pedestrian Route Changes | Finding your way to the SRC, new UBC Aquatic Centre, and War Memorial Gym

 

UBC bus loop closes March 6.

The new UBC Bus Exchange located off Wesbrook Mall at University Boulevard partially opens on March 6. Bus stops from the old bus loop, including the popular 99 B-Line, will relocate temporarily to Wesbrook Mall on March 6.

Bus stops making the move include 25, 33, 41, 43, 49, 99 B-Line, and 480. The stops will relocate until construction of the new UBC Bus Exchange is completed in May 2017. The popular 99 B-Line stop will move to the entrance of the new UBC Bus Exchange.

Please note:

The sidewalks along Student Union Blvd and Wesbrook Mall are now closed. Detour routes around the Student Recreation Centre and new Aquatic Centre are provided as shown in the map. The old bus loop is the site of the future Gage South student residence.
