Units of proposed housing development in Acadia area of campus for single students will face onto a 'village street' that will have three entry points.
Gov't go-ahead sought for student
townhouses in Acadia Park area
I Robert Wyman
Wyman new
chancellor
W. Robert Wyman, the head of one of
British Columbia's major investment firms
and chairman of the Canadian Chamber of
Commerce, has been elected chancellor of
the University of B.C.
He succeeds J.V. Clyne, who completes
his second three-year term in June. A UBC
chancellor may serve for only two terms.
Mr. Wyman, a 1956 graduate of UBC,
defeated Stan Persky in the chancellorship
balloting which was conducted by mail. All
graduates of the University were eligible to
vote.
Mr. Wyman is chairman of Pemberton,
Houston, Willoughby Inc.
The chancellor, although unpaid, is the
University's senior representative and is a
member of the Board of Governors and of
the Senate. It is the chancellor who confers
degrees on behalf of the University.
A townhouse development that will
accommodate 801 single students, to be
paid for with rental income, will be built
at UBC if the provincial government
approves.
The University's Board of Governors has
asked Victoria for permission to borrow the
$16 million estimated cost of the 191-unit
complex that would be built on a 4.5-acre
triangular site of vacant land bounded by
Pearkes Road, Fairview Crescent and
Agronomy Road in the Acadia Park area
of the campus.
The townhouses would range from two
to three storeys and each unit would
contain four to six bedrooms. Occupants of
each unit would share a common kitchen,
living and dining area.
Graham Argyle, director of Facilities
Planning at UBC, said the development
could be ready for the 1985-86 school year,
provided the provincial government gives
its early approval.
In other housing news, the Board
approved the calling of tenders for
construction of the new low-rise addition to
the Walter Gage Residence, which will
accommodate a maximum of 234 students
in 165 units.
The provincial government has
authorized the University to borrow $5
million to finance construction of the unit.
The balance of construction costs will be
met from capital reserves generated by the
Conference Centre.
No student housing has been built at
UBC since 1967, and the townhouse
development would still leave the
University more than 2,000 bedrooms short
of its objective of providing housing for 25
per cent of single student enrolment. UBC
now has accommodation for fewer than
4,000 students.
Other recommendations approved by the
Board at its March 1 meeting will affect
room and rental rates in single- and
married-student residence accommodation
on campus.
• Daily room rates in single-student
residences, with the exception of the low-
rise unit of the Walter Gage Residence,
will increase 2 per cent, effective Sept. 1.
Surplus funds generated by the increase
will be set aside as a contribution toward
future asset replacement.
• Increases in rental rates for
accommodation in the high-rise unit in
Acadia Park will range from 10.2 per cent
to 12.6 per cent. The increases will be
effective May 1 for new tenants and July 1
for existing tenants.
Rental rates for the remaining Acadia
Park accommodation — townhouses and
President's Row units — will be subject to
a dual rental-rate structure for one year.
Present tenants will pay a smaller increase
effective July 1 and will be given 15
months' notice before paying the full
increase. New tenants will pay the higher
rents effective May 1.
Effective July 1, current Acadia Park
tenants will pay rents ranging from $300 to
$370, depending on the level of
accommodation, up from a range of
$277-$S13. From May 1, new Acadia Park
tenants will pay rents ranging from $355 to
$430 for the same accommodation.
•  Rental rates for accommodation in
Acadia Camp, except for those units
renovated in 1983-84, will increase 15 per
cent, effective Sept. 1.
Money available for 753 jobs
UBC has been allotted $903,600 for the
employment of students this summer,
enough to provide 753 two-month jobs at
$600 a month.
Spring, Summer
'night' planned
An Admission and Advisors' Night for
1984 Spring and Summer Sessions will be
held April 5, 6 to 8 p.m., in the main
lounge of International House.
Extra-Sessional Studies will provide
prospective and returning students with
advice about their programs of study and
registration. New students must produce
their secondary school and post-secondary
school transcripts.
Only $600,000 was provided last
summer.
Projects may be initiated by either
faculty or students, but the jobs must be
supervised by a member of the University
faculty or staff.
Under terms of the Youth Employment
Program, the maximum subsidy available
is $600 a month for two months, although
departments may augment this.
Departments hiring students are
responsible for the payment of fringe
benefits, approximately 8 per cent of
salary.
Job application forms are available from
department and faculty offices, and from
the Student Counselling and Resources
Centre. UBC Reports March 14, 1984
Six ceremonies this
year for graduation
There will be six graduation ceremonies
at UBC this year instead of the usual three.
There will be morning and afternoon
ceremonies in the War Memorial
Gymnasium on May 30, 31 and June 1,
starting at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. each
day.
The first ceremony will be for the
conferring of graduate and undergraduate
degrees in science. Honorary degrees will
go to Henry P. (Budge) Bell-Irving, former
Lieutenant-Governor of B.C., and Dr.
Charles McDowell, who was head of the
Department of Chemistry at UBC for 26
years.
Degrees in the Faculty of Arts will be
conferred on the afternoon of May 30 —
including family and nutritional sciences,
music, fine arts and social work — and an
honorary degree will go to Mstislav
Rostropovich, internationally acclaimed
conductor, cellist and pianist.
Thursday morning, May 31, degrees will
be conferred in medicine, pharmaceutical
sciences, dentistry, nursing and audiology
and speech sciences. An honorary degree
will be given to Kafnlobps-born Thomas
Shoyama, former chairman of Atomic
Energy Canada and a 1938 UBC graduate.
That afternoon, all education degrees
will be conferred, including physical
education and recreation, and the
president of the International University in
Tokyo, Saburo Okita, will receive an
honorary degree.
The morning ceremony on June 1 is for
graduates in agricultural sciences,
engineering, forestry, architecture and
community and regional planning. Leopold
L.G. (Poldi) Bentley, vice-chairman of
Canfor Corporation, will receive an
honorary degree.
Degrees in law and commerce will be
conferred Friday afternoon, June 1.
Retiring Chancellor J.V. Clyne, who has
conferred many thousands of degrees since
becoming chancellor of UBC in 1978, will
himself be honored by the university he
graduated from more than 60 years ago.
He will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws
degree, to be conferred by George
Pedersen, UBC's president and vice-
chancellor.

Open House brought many thousands of visitors to campus March
9, 10 and 11 as Agricultural Sciences, Forestry and Engineering set
up more than 100 displays and exhibits. At top, newly-hatched
chickens fascinate future Aggie student. Gold panning proved
popular with future engineers, and a log-sawing competition in
Forestry produced hundreds of paving slabs. UBC Report* March 14, 1984
