Utilizing 603 m2 of shell space on Level 2 of the newly constructed Robert H. N. Ho Centre for Psychiatry and Education (HOpe Centre) at Lions Gate Hospital (LGH), the proposed Academic Hub Project will be designed to accommodate collaboration and shared learning within an open and transparent 21st Century learning environment.

Encompassing academic research, professional practice and clinical education, aboriginal health, and a “Knowledge transfer commons”, the facility will provide shared support spaces and a flexible and visually connected work environment that fosters interaction and interdisciplinary discourse among staff and students. The space designated for the Hub is located adjacent to the UBC Faculty of Medicine and is intended to attract staff and students from the entire LGH campus.
