Find Us: DFP Ground Zero

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. To find the suite, walk to the rear (south-east) of the building by passing through the large open study area and up the stairs to the second level where you will find yourself in the FSC student "treetop" lounge. Once in the lounge, turn left and pass through the double door: Suite 2300 is on the right.

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:
