Overview

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.
