Venues and Spaces

The recently renovated Sauder School of Business building houses a variety of event and conference venues and spaces that can be adapted to fit your needs.

Need an impressive conference room to host a meeting? Try The Big 4 Conference Centre. For more informal functions or receptions, the Sauder building has an impressive new foyer area - CPA Hall. We also offer lecture rooms, classrooms, networking/mingling areas and breakout rooms for lectures, conferences and symposiums.

As part of the wider UBC campus, we can even help you find suitable venues for outdoor events, such a wedding, or after-event BBQ. Need overnight accommodation? We can help there, too.

Contact us to enquire about the availability of any of the venues and spaces below.
