Booking the Global Lounge

  • UFV International is open for regular business hours between 8am-4pm Monday-Friday. Therefore, if you request a booking during this time, the Global Lounge space is not exclusively for your event. There would be regular student traffic and interaction, and some noise that may be disruptive. But, at the same time, it may encourage more people to join your event.
  • Events can be booked exclusively for your event between 4-7pm Monday to Friday.

Charlotte Xia during UFV Holi festival

On March 6th, we joined the Holi celebration, which was very new to me. It was the first time I heard about this Indian event and we had so much fun with all the colour throwing and were unrecognizable by the end.

We were crazy about it. And in the afternoon of the same day, we also joined the Lunar Year party, and I liked the food there. These three months have been awesomely incredible, and I am looking forward to other future events.
