UBC (including Neighbourhood Housing)

The hazards most likely to be encountered on UBC lands (including Neighbourhood Housing areas) are earthquakes and wildland-urban interface fires.

Metro Vancouver has the legislated mandate to protect the safety and well-being of all Electoral Area A residents through preparation and planning for various types of emergencies. Under the authority of Metro Vancouver’s Electoral Area A Emergency Management Plan, the University of British Columbia has developed its own Emergency Plan for the UBC campus. UBC’s Emergency Plan should be considered the primary response guidance for the UBC campus (including the UBC Neighbourhood Housing areas).

Please refer to UBC's emergency preparedness website for specific emergency contacts and information.

Residents of the UBC Neighbourhood Housing Areas, please refer also to the UNA's public safety page.
