The Chapman Learning CommonsThe Learning Commons website is an evolving collection of student-curated learning resources to support academic success and wellness. Based out of the Chapman Learning Commons in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Learning Commons website is a collaboration between UBC Library, the Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology and the Centre for Student Involvement & Careers. Through an emphasis on peer-led, student-driven initiatives and shared-decision making, we strive to enrich academic support and enhance the experience of all UBC students, with an emphasis on the undergraduate experience. The website provides companion resources to our in-person services in the Chapman Learning Commons, where we provide access to advanced technologies, collaborative work areas, workshop space and learning support. Home to the Centre for Writing & Scholarly Communication and AMS Tutoring drop-in help, the Chapman Learning Commons emphasizes a learner- and student-centered approach to services
Our friendly staff of Chapman Learning Commons Assistants, members of the UBC community, take on the role of helping library-users access these offered services as well as pointing students and community members in the right direction with their learning, resources and explorations on campus.
Hello! My name is Umaima (pronounced like Memma) and I am a 5th year Economics student pursuing a minor in Philosophy. On a typical day, you can find me listening to podcasts, exploring Vancouver's eateries, or discovering interesting music and art. I strive to increase awareness of our services, and learn more about general resources at UBC and pass along that knowledge to students.
My name is Mallory and I am a Creative Writing student in the Master of Fine Arts Program. My first book of poetry is coming out with BookThug Press in 2018. I love meeting new people and I am here at the Chapman Learning Commons to chat, help and make student's days more efficient and brighter. Toss any question my way and I will do my best to track down an answer.
Hi! My name is Arman and I am a Bachelor of Science graduate with a major in Chemistry and minor in Commerce. I am currently enrolled in the Diploma in Accounting Program and am excited to be back at the CLC Desk. I see it as a new challenge to take on to better myself in a professional and personal manner. So, if you're in the area, stop by and say hello. I'll be by the desk saving the world one printing at a time.
Hey, I'm Gena. I'm a Creative Writing Graduate student and am originally from the Sunshine Coast. I finished a BFA at UBC a few years ago, traveled for a year, worked for a year, then missed student life so much that I'm back! I enjoy rain storms, good books, and trashy TV. Come say hello!

If you ever feel like you want to maximize your time on campus but don’t know where to start, drop by our desk and we’ll help you figure it out!

See you at the desk or around campus (:
Hi! My name is Cameron and I'm a fourth year student studying Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Nanotechnology & Microsystems. I've been with the CLC a couple years now and continue to strive to improve both the effectiveness and visibility of our services on campus.

Hi everyone, I'm Nicole! I'm in my fifth year in the English Honours program with a minor in Gender, Race, Sexuality & Social Justice. You can usually find me in various places on campus crying over the amount of reading I have to do. The library printers have finally learned that I would rather be feared than liked. If they're giving you any trouble, just let me know. I'm pretty scrappy.
