DFP Classrooms

The Designing for People Research Cluster's physical space is located on the UBC Point Grey campus in UBC's Forest Sciences Centre, FSC Suite 2300. Located in UBC's Forestry building, the DFP Suite includes the DFP Classroom, where most of our events and courses are held; the DFP Studio, a project lab and lounge (including sofas and an excellent coffee machine - come hang out), and the Vault (come and see for yourself).

The Forestry building is indicated by the red arrow in the image below:
