Facilities teams work together to ensure an ideal exam experience for UBC students

Setting up an exam space is not an easy task — it requires hours of hard work and strict compliance with UBC’s exam requirements, especially with space setup and delivery of exam booklets.

Twice a year, at end of Term 1 and 2, Custodial Services and Municipal Services work together to set up Osborne Gym and Student Recreation Centre (SRC) Gym with 1,340 tables and chairs, to support and maintain an ideal exam experience for UBC students.

Municipal Services’ Streets & Operations Support (SOS) team move these items from South Campus warehouse to both gyms, where the Service Workers take over tarping the gym floors and laying out all of the items. During the exams, Custodial Services ensure the exam booklets in all of the exam spaces on campus are replenished.

Kudos to both teams for another excellent setup effort this past week!

Teardown of the exams will commence in the afternoon of December 22, 2022.
