New UBC Aquatic Centre Construction Updates

New Pool 5

The construction of a new, modern Aquatic Centre allows UBC the opportunity to expand and update its current aquatic program. Alongside the need to ensure a new facility can compete with similar facilities in other Post-Secondary institutions, a new Centre will be able to adequately service the growing residential neighbourhoods on campus.  A balance between a competition facility and a neighbourhood leisure facility is a mandate of the final project. Construction is well underway and is expected to be completed late fall 2016. The project will cost approximately $39 million dollars in capital funding.
