Gateway Study Space

Arts One Gateway SpaceThose who enrol in Arts One are able to use the beautiful and spacious IBLC 380 Gateway space, a quiet study area for use by current First-Year Gateway Students only.

Gateway is the term used to refer to the four First-Year programs that share this space: Arts One, Science One, Co-ordinated Arts Program (CAP), Co-ordinated Science Program (CSP).

This quiet study area has floor-to-ceiling windows as well as study carrels (the study carrel area is marked for ‘silent’ study).  Some areas are marked as ‘silent’.  You will require a valid Gateway Student sticker on your UBC Student Card to use this area, as it is reserved only for Gateway Students. This sticker will be available at your Arts One seminar.

The Gateway study area is also where you’ll find the Arts One main office and the faculty offices. All these parts of Arts One are in the south wing of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (1961 East Mall), Rm 380. This is part of a modern addition to the historic Main Library; the original 1925 building remains at the core of the Learning Centre. Many Arts One classrooms are downstairs from the study space, on the first floor of IBLC.

As you will discover if you haven’t already, IBLC is a very popular study area on campus, and Gateway students are lucky to have a space in this busy building all to themselves.
