Facing east from the Buchanan Building: 1. Brock Commons Phase Two / 2. Tallwood House / 3. Arts Student Centre
With the addition of nearly 600 new beds for students, Brock Commons Phase 2 will help us meet the significant demand for on-campus student housing at UBC’s Vancouver campus. This new residence project will also support the wider campus community through the incorporation of important child care, food service and social spaces.
Brock Commons will further animate and deepen the sense of community in this northeast area of campus, which includes a number of new and heritage residence areas, educational and arts facilities, recreation centres and campus life amenities.
Applying to live in Brock Commons?
If you’re planning to add Brock Commons to your preferences in your residence application, you should know that residents of this area will likely be impacted by this construction project. We want you to make an informed decision when you apply.
The construction site is located to the west of Tallwood House, along Walter Gage Road, between the Allard School of Law and Brock Hall.
Construction hours may be extended (e.g., earlier start time; extended to Sundays) to ensure the project is completed on time.
Noise & disruptions for Brock Commons residents
Residents of Brock Commons should expect to hear noise from heavy equipment, industrial traffic and construction.
There are also pedestrian and vehicle traffic disruptions in the area, along with an increased level of dust. Some residents will be less affected, if their units do not face directly toward the construction area.
As you are likely aware, construction at UBC is an everyday activity, and safe, prudent construction practices are always followed. Nevertheless, while UBC can reduce the impact to residents and the campus community, it cannot be avoided altogether.
