Parking and Travel Update – December 1-9

Important Parking and Travel Update

December 1-9, 2018


Travelling to and from the UBC Tennis Centre

If you are planning your trip to the UBC Tennis Centre between December 1st-9th, please be aware that there will be additional traffic in the area due to the ISU Grand Prix Skating Finals, held at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre.
We recommend giving yourself extra time to travel to and from the UBC Tennis Centre due to the large amount of traffic.
The alleyway between the UBC Tennis Centre and the Osborne Centre will be closed, however our main entrance will still be accessible. Please be careful on your commute to the UBC Tennis Centre as there will be a large amount of buses and cars in the area.

Parking Updates

The Osborne surface parking lot will be closed to the public.
Also, expect a large volume of vehicles in the Thunderbird Parkade. Notices will be posted outside the Parkade if it is full.
We recommend trying to find street parking along East Mall, in the surface parking lot on the corner of Thunderbird Blvd and East Mall, or in the Health Sciences Parkade on 2250 Health Sciences Mall.
Please check the Find Parking Map before travelling to UBC. Updates will be posted to inform you of closed or full lots.
