In this photo from November 9, you can see crews have begun assembling the pre-fabricated wall sections of the second floor. The 32-bed residence will provide an on-site home for Canadian and International scientists as they conduct their groundbreaking research in animal reproduction, behaviour and care.
ABOUT THE DAIRY CENTRE STUDENT HOUSING PROJECT
The UBC Dairy Centre is an internationally recognized world-class facility supporting dairy cattle research. Each year a large number of students and other researchers from around the globe study at the Centre which is also a modern working dairy farm.
Research and teaching productivity at the Centre depends upon the number of researchers working on-site. The new residence will provide the opportunity for 32 researchers to live on-site and to have access to their experimental animals and research facilities, round-the-clock, 7 days a week.
The new building will strengthen the rich international learning experience that only occurs when students and other researchers share spaces with one another, are close to their research and experience each other’s cultures. We invite you to join us in this endeavour.
