UBC students pen open letter against end of overnight residence staffing


Some students at the University of British Columbia have penned an open letter to express frustration over the university’s decision to end overnight staffing at the university residences. The open letter argues that the change reduces safety on campus. “If something were to occur overnight, students will not only need to have access to a phone in order to get assistance, but they will also need to wait for the (overnight mobile team) to arrive “¦ this change could have dire consequences in emergency situations,” reads the letter. The move also ended overnight access to the residence gyms, study areas, and common areas. “It’s really inconsiderate because so many students have different schedules,” said UBC student Vivica Sparrow.
