UBC students pledge $85 million for SUB

August 3, 2008

Last Wednesday, UBC's student union, the Alma Mater Society, voted to contribute $85 million to a new Student Union Building to be built at University Square, making it the largest single donation in UBC's history. The investment will stem from an incremental levy on future student fees paid to the AMS starting this fall. Earlier this year, the AMS held a student referendum in which the majority agreed to a levy for a new building. UBC will contribute another $25 million to the SUB, which will open by 2014.
