UBC Facilities provides services to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain UBC’s buildings, public realm and utilities infrastructure to ensure a safe, functional and sustainable physical environment for the UBC Vancouver campus community.
For immediate assistance, please contact the Service Centre at 604-822-2173
The Service Centre phone line is staffed Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Outside of these hours, you can leave a message on our voice mail. For emergency situations, your call will be connected through to our shift staff who will answer your call and coordinate a response to the emergency request.
To ensure high prioritization for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) issues in learning spaces (classrooms, lecture theatres, etc.) please call the Service Centre at 604-822-2173.
Facilities Managers are the university community’s primary contact point, and act as the faculties and departments’ direct contact person for any issues or concerns regarding their space. Each building on campus is assigned a Facilities Manager, and they are responsible for working closely with faculties and departments to understand their needs and expectations to support the university’s vision and mission. This individual is your connection to services offered by our Facilities teams, and they are here to help you with any building-related issues, requests, and concerns.
You can look up the name and contact information for your Facilities Manager directly or contact the Service Centre at 604-822-2173.
You can also view the UBC Campus Zone Map (PDF) to determine your building’s zone.
