Stadium is UBC's next neighbourhood, and is one of eight neighbourhoods identified in the UBC Land Use Plan.
Why We Plan Neighbourhoods
UBC builds neighbourhoods to create vibrant communities; to provide a place for the UBC community to live, work, learn and play; and, to build a financial endowment to support UBC’s academic mission.
UBC's Land Use Plan sets the long-term direction for how the campus grows and evolves.
Neighbourhood plans are used to guide the development of the neighbourhood on how to implement the Land Use Plan. They convey the shared vision for each neighbourhood and include policies for housing, how people move around, open space, and community services.
The following governance structure guides UBC's land use planning:
PROVINCE: Approves Land Use Plan
UBC BOARD OF GOVERNORS: Approves campus and neighbourhood plans, academic development projects and policies
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT BOARD: Approves development projects in neighbourhoods
UBC ADMINISTRATION: Develops campus and neighbourhood plans. Engages campus stakeholders, partners and community
COMMUNITY: Provides input and feedback. Consists of UBC students, faculty, staff, residents, stakeholders and partners
The endowment is a fund that generates revenue in perpetuity to support UBC's academic mission. The sources of the endowment include donations and revenue generated from building neighbourhoods. The direct housing benefits include the financing of student housing projects as well as developing and managing rental housing, including housing restricted to faculty and staff.
Endowment beneficiaries include scholarships, bursaries, student housing, research centres, and faculty affordability housing programs.
