MSAC Vancouver Updates

July 2021:

16 months ago MSAC closed its doors to help keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are very happy to announce that MSAC will be back up and running as of August 16th at 10:00 am for gym use and study space. Further details about club and event bookings will be coming out in the near future.

While at MSAC, we ask you to observe the following:

  • Complete a daily health assessment. If you are feeling sick, stay at home and seek medical guidance.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands, or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue.
  • Please respect everyone’s personal choices and comfort levels.
  • Learn more by visiting https://srs.ubc.ca/covid-19/
