New 'Passive House Certified' Facilities Management Building


We are pleased to announce that UNBC has installed 3 new electric vehicle charging stations as of June 2021. They are Siemens high-end residential style units, which are easier to operate and free to use (beyond regular parking fees on campus). There are two charging stalls in parking lot B, and one charging spot beside the entrance to Hospitality Services.

Please visit the Electric Vehicle page for more information on the new units and how to use them.
