A Room for Every Occasion
Treat your student groups, professional teams, clients, guests, or conference delegates, to a unique venue, stunning view, and classic décor at one of Canada’s most outstanding pieces of architecture.
Thea Koerner House Graduate Student Centre
A hidden gem located at the Northwest corner of the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus (near Rose Garden Parkade, Nitobe Memorial Garden and Flag Pole Plaza), GSC can accommodate a wide range of student, corporate and community events, including workshops, parties, meetings, conferences, dinners, cultural performances, weddings, and more.
From the intimate Penthouse to the spacious Ballroom, the Graduate Student Centre has a space perfect for any event. Featuring indoor and outdoor spaces with a panoramic view of the bustling campus and the breathtaking natural Georgia Strait, our flexible and functional rooms can host both small groups and parties of up to 280 guests.
The solid cedar screens on the building exterior and extensive landscaping, including a water feature in the courtyard, extend a warm welcome to your guests as they arrive. Many of the original features from 1961 when the building was completed, such as ceiling light fixtures and fireplaces, coupled with historical photos and paintings hung throughout the building, enhance every event experience with a touch of UBC’s past.
Thea Koerner House Graduate Student Centre was awarded the prestigious Massey Gold Medals for Architecture in 1961 and considered to be the most outstanding piece of architecture completed in Canada in a three-year period.
Situated on the fourth floor of the AMS Student Nest, a convenient location in the heart of UBC, the GSS Loft offers a breathtaking 270° panoramic aerial view of the campus. It is suitable for various kinds of academic, social or business events, including workshops, parties, meetings and dinners.
Opened in June 2015, the AMS Student Nest boasts as one of the world’s most sustainable buildings.
