UBC buys $70M property in Surrey to expand access to education in the region

November 4, 2021
The University of British Columbia has bought a three-acre, $70M property in Surrey that will be used to expand access to education in the region. The new property, which is located near the Sky Train and Surrey Memorial Hospital, will allow UBC to deliver on its key commitment to improving access to education for people in the region. UBC will begin to consult with Surrey, the Fraser Valley, and Indigenous communities in the new year to determine how the site will be envisioned. “UBC is committed to creating welcoming spaces that advance innovation and collaboration and respond to community and regional needs—and this new site demonstrates this,” UBC President said Santa J Ono.
