Campus Vision 2050 is shaping how UBC Vancouver’s physical campus changes and grows over the next 30 years

University of British Columbia Campus Vision 2050

This is our opportunity to work together to create a bold new vision for the future of the Vancouver campus.

The UBC Vancouver campus is situated within the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam).

The Musqueam people have been stewards and caretakers of this territory for millennia. UBC strives toward building meaningful, reciprocal and mutually beneficial partnerships with Musqueam and to learn from their traditional relationship with the land.

Campus Vision 2050 includes a Musqueam-specific engagement process, co-created by UBC and Musqueam, that supports and aligns with the implementation of the UBC Indigenous Strategic Plan.

Campus Vision 2050 Timeline

Campus Vision 2050 is a comprehensive, 2.5-year public planning process to update two key land use policy documents for the Vancouver campus, the Land Use Plan and the Vancouver Campus Plan.

Your voice matters.

The last campus-wide land use planning process was more than 10 years ago. It laid the foundation for the campus we have today.

The campus continues to change and grow, as does the region and communities it serves.

And there is increasing pressure to address powerful, global and regional forces — like the climate emergency, housing affordability, and truth and reconciliation.

This is our opportunity to imagine the university campus and community of the future – one that supports UBC's academic mission, meets our individual and collective needs, and enables the university community to thrive.

Your ideas, perspective, hopes, dreams and concerns are critical to the process.
