Student Facilities

Study Suite

During regular working hours, a study suite is available for small group-work to UBC students. The study suite contains tables and chairs for up to 12 students, a wall-mounted television attached to an Apple computer with wireless keyboard and mouse for group projects, and an Apple terminal bundled with office and graphics applications. Group use is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If booked or in use, the Garden may be able to make other spaces available for individuals or groups of students.

Library and Reading Room

Connected to the Study Suite, the Library and Reading Room houses a collection of over 3000 books and selections from over 150 magazine, journal, and periodical titles. Borrowing privileges are restricted, but students do have access to the collection on-site.

Facility Rentals

For UBC student clubs, discounted rates may apply for the rental of UBC Botanical Garden facilities.

Botanical Garden and Nitobe Memorial Garden

Students are invited to use the gardens and naturalistic areas of UBC Botanical Garden not only for research or learning, but as a place of respite or contemplation. Have a seat on one of the many benches and study. Enjoy the cool breeze flowing off the Strait of Georgia while relaxing on a blanket on the lawn. UBC students receive free admission to the Botanical Garden and Nitobe Memorial Garden, upon presentation of a valid student card (other students receive concession rates).
