UBC Vancouver – Transit operators’ strike:

Although strike action is ongoing, the university is operating as normal. Classes are proceeding and students are expected to attend classes. However, you are advised to plan ahead and look at TransLink updates for disruptions to your bus route and make other travel plans if necessary. Check your syllabus and contact your instructor if you are concerned about potentially arriving late or missing classes. Please note that Arts Academic Advising will not be accommodating or providing academic concession for lateness, missed classes or missed coursework that students may experience attributed to the strike. However, we will be processing academic concession as usual if the student’s grounds for concession adhere to UBC’s Academic Concession Policy. View the latest updates related to the transit strike and tips on helping you prepare during transit strike action on the UBC website.
