Limited access to some facilities
With a reduction in the number of people currently on campus due to social distancing measures including remote delivery of classes and working from home, UBC Okanagan is moving to limit access to certain spaces in academic and administration buildings.
These measures will allow custodial resources to focus on enhanced cleaning in areas of buildings that remain open.
Classrooms, lecture halls and several instructional computer labs will not be automatically opened each day. Members of faculty or staff with Salto access to these spaces will continue to have access. Others may request access by contacting Campus Security dispatch at 250 807 9236.
The following computer labs will remain OPEN:
EME 2205 (Engineering, Management and Education building)
SCI 126, SCI 128 and SCI 234 (Science building)
Instructional computer labs that will remain CLOSED are:
ART 215 (Arts building)
FIP 129 and FIP 133 (Fipke Centre)
ASC 165 (Arts and Sciences Centre)
