UKAAM Facilities

The UKAAM has a suite of office and common spaces in the L.S. Klinck building: LSK 306, 309, and 311. The common areas include a kitchenette, meeting areas with whiteboards and AV equipment, and comfortable lounge areas. UKAAM members are welcome to use the common spaces for quiet study, for meeting with colleagues and research groups, and for giving presentations. The lounge (LSK 306) and the small conference room (LSK 311-A) can be reserved by emailing Existing room bookings can be viewed here.

We have 26 desks for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows; in the UKAAM application, new members can specify whether they would like to be assigned to a desk at the UKAAM, if available.

Doors to the UKAAM suite are kept locked. UKAAM members may request access (via UBC card) by emailing Access to the suite is restricted to UKAAM members and their accompanied guests only, except during seminars and other UKAAM events. Many members’ computers and other personal possessions are unsecured at their desks, so it is very important that the area be kept secure.
