Graduate Student Desk Space

UBC’s Okanagan campus offers graduate student desk space for exclusive use by graduate students. Access to this space is granted to current IGS graduate students upon request, who agree to abide by the terms and conditions mentioned below. 

Graduate Student Desk Space

Graduate desk space is unassigned and used on a first-come, first-served basis. There are multiple desks available. However, please do your best to keep the shared space clean, tidy, and free of personal items when not in use. Items should not be left on desks when the desk is not in use overnight.  

Storage is available in the room for students wanting to leave/store personal items while a desk is not being used. We ask that students do not to store perishable items and to take any items with them when they no longer require access to the space (i.e., long term leave, graduation, etc.).  

Please contact if you have any questions or concerns regarding the graduate desk space.  

To request access to graduate student desk space, please submit the Graduate Student Desk Space Request Form. 


Please review UBC’s below Statement on Respectful Environment and submit the form to request access to graduate student desk space on campus. 

Once your access is approved, you will receive an email from indicating which space you have been granted access to. Access will either be added to your existing Salto card, or a new Salto card will be available for pick-up. 

The UBC Respectful Environment Statement for students, faculty, and staff was revised in May 2014.  The Statement speaks to our freedoms and our responsibilities and provides the guiding principles to support us in building an environment in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity, and inclusion are valued.  

The University of British Columbia envisions a climate in which students, faculty and staff are provided with the best possible conditions for learning, researching and working, including an environment that is dedicated to excellence, equity and mutual respect. The University of British Columbia strives to realize this vision by establishing employment and educational practices that respect the dignity of individuals and make it possible for everyone to live, work, and study in a positive and supportive environment, free from harmful behaviours such as bullying and harassment.
