VISA Handbook

Welcome to the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory (AHVA). Navigating around a large institution like the University of British Columbia can be daunting, so AHVA has assembled this handy guide to assist you and make the process a little easier. As a student taking classes with AHVA, you will be accessing a number of unique studio facilities and working spaces, and interacting with our specialized faculty and staff. This website summarizes eligibility and access procedures to our studios, provides studio area contacts, and outlines general art practice guidelines. In this handbook, you will also find information on health and safety, emergency contacts, and other AHVA or UBC resources. Please connect with any of the AHVA resources listed on this site if you have any questions. AHVA faculty and staff are happy to assist you or to provide direction.
