About Campus Vision 2050

The UBC Vancouver campus, situated on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people, is home to world-class teaching, learning and research facilities and programs, thriving residential neighbourhoods and a vibrant community. In early 2022, UBC Campus and Community Planning is launching Campus Vision 2050 (CV2050), a comprehensive, two-and-a-half-year land use planning process. The CV2050 process will build on the history of this unique place and plan for what comes next for the campus and community in a changing region and world.

CV2050 will be developed through comprehensive engagement with Musqueam and the campus community, and informed by policy,

principles, best practices, and societal imperatives like housing affordability, reconciliation, climate change, anti-racism, connectivity and community wellbeing. The public process will formally launch in early 2022 with a broad conversation with the university community on needs and aspirations. There will be several points of public engagement along the way to enable comprehensive community input.

CV2050 will lead to a long-term vision for the UBC Vancouver campus and ensure the future direction builds on what makes UBC a special place and enhances the livability, sociability and character of the campus within its unique context. The final vision and plans will support the needs of the university and balance the interests of our campus communities, our Indigenous hosts, the broader region, and the environment.
