New iSchool Website

Hi all,

In anticipation of the new school year, the school has launched a new website. The URL is the same.

Please take some time to get familiar with the new site. All of the pertinent information from the old site has been transitioned over to the new website, but it will likely not be in the same location, since our top-level navigation has been altered in compliance with the UBC Faculty of Arts’ Common Look and Feel. Please note the “Current Students” section on the front page, which includes the link to the iSchool Central portal. Information on courses, your degree programs, and funding/fees can be located under the “Programs” tab.

Some exciting new aspects of the new site include its responsive design, which will allow for greater functionality on mobile devices, and better integration with our social media platforms. Over the coming weeks, we will be adding additional items to the website, including updated images, interactive forms, and more.

If you notice any glitches or content errors, or if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Dan Slessor at

Update: Some people have noticed that they are receiving a “403 error: Forbidden Access” when trying to access the site. Arts IT has informed us that this is a “caching error that will correct itself shortly. If the same users who are experiencing the error use a different browser, they should find that they are directed to the homepage of the new site. The reason the error message is appearing is because their browser is searching for the exact address of the old page, however, once the cache has cleared they will no longer experience this issue.”

Please let us know if you continue to experience any issues accessing the site.
