Natural Gas Curtailment Notice

Effective Wednesday, December 12, UBC Energy & Water Services in conjunction with Student Housing and Hospitality Services, UBC Athletics, and Building Operations will be reducing the temperatures in all buildings across the University where feasible.

The temperature reduction is urgently needed due to a pipeline rupture this October near Prince George, which has diminished provincial natural gas supplies. Slightly reducing temperatures within buildings can significantly reduce our use of Natural Gas and the associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Please make sure that if you plan on visiting our facility in December that you bring appropriate layers for on and off the court or warmer clothing, especially if you know you are easily responsive to colder temperatures. Our apologies for any inconvenience during this time as UBC does its part to reduce Natural Gas consumption.
