Stay safe in the ice & snow season

When extreme weather comes to the Vancouver campus, Building Operations is responsible for managing snow and ice. The weather at UBC can be unpredictable—as UBC has it’s own micro climate which can be quite different from lower lying areas. We monitor custom weather feeds to get accurate predictions of what’s coming and work hard to make the campus as safe as possible as soon as possible. In extreme weather situations, updates on campus conditions, classes or exams are available on

Find out how we prioritize different routes on campus and who to call if you need help managing ice and snow.

If you see any slick or slippery areas that need our attention right away, give us a call at 604.822.2173.
