Getting Here

Public Transit

Use the Translink website to plan your route to UBC, or use the "Bus" option on Google Maps direction-finder, which will likely have you arrive at the UBC bus loop near the SUB. Walk west from the bus loop, and then south along Main Mall. There are also shuttle routes for getting around campus. 


The Thunderbird Parkade and Health Sciences Parkade are the closest parkades to the ICICS/CS building which is located at 2366 Main Mall and the Hugh Dempster Pavilion at 6245 Agronomy Rd. It takes approximately 5 minutes to walk west from the parkades to the building. The "B4" Lot on the corner of Main Mall and Agronomy is much closer than the parkades, however it may be difficult to find spots. It also has several short-term meters. More info.
