Scheduling Services is located in Brock Hall and is responsible for the overall coordination of all of the University's general classrooms. The unit coordinates academic course schedules, ad hoc event use of classrooms, and final exam schedules, and processes liquor license requests for indoor functions in unlicensed areas of the Vancouver campus.
Each year, Scheduling Services schedules approximately 17,000 activities (3,000 specific to UBCO). Roughly 11,000 events are also booked annually, along with about 150 Distance Education exams written by nearly 6,900 students both on and off campus. In addition, the department coordinates the scheduling of final examinations whereby over 240,000 exams are written each year. We work closely with 150+ Timetable and Scheduling Representatives in 22 Faculties and Schools, and work in partnership with: Facilities Planning, UBC IT Audio Visual Services, UBC IT Academic Systems Support, ES SIS Security, Building Operations, and Conferences & Accommodations.
