Workspace 2.0



Please note that AirWatch Content Locker Sync, which provides desktop file synchronization for Workspace, will not be updated by the vendor to resolve compatibility issues for macOS Mojave (or future releases of macOS).

We are currently working on next steps for the Workspace 2.0 service and will be reaching out to the community for feedback and consultation over the coming months.

Workspace 2.0 is an on-campus cloud based file sharing service. Workspace offers an easy and secure way for staff and faculty to share files, both internally and externally with colleagues, partners and clients, on any supported device. It also enables UBC to centrally deliver, manage and secure data, while complying with Canadian, Provincial and UBC security requirements.

Workspace 2.0 is available to all current UBC employees (and to Faculty Emeriti on request). Those who are not UBC employees may access Workspace when shared to by a UBC employee.
