Water dispensing and filtration equipment

Drinking water on the UBC Vancouver campus comes from Metro Vancouver’s water system, and is regularly tested at UBC and by Metro Vancouver to maintain high-quality drinking water on campus.

If a faculty/department would like to order third-party water dispensing and filtration equipment, this order and ongoing maintenance or refills would be customer-funded. Domestic water dispensing and filtration equipment is not preferred by UBC Facilities. Please be aware of the risks associated with installing third-party equipment as this may result in damages, and maintenance and repairs will be the responsibility of the faculty/department.
