Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall

Opened in 1993, the First Nations Longhouse is an award-winning building constructed with Western red cedar logs and designed to reflect a traditional Musqueam shed-style longhouse.

The facility includes Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall, a dramatic 3,600 square foot multipurpose space adorned with beautifully carved houseposts and beams, all of which provides a wonderful setting for any gathering.

Sty-Wet-Tan is a hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ or Musqueam term, meaning spirit of the west wind.

If you would like to use this space for a UBC Indigenous-focused event, go to Book Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall.

Please note: The First Nations Longhouse is an Indigenous student services centre. It is not an art gallery, museum, or interpretative centre; therefore, it is not open to the public.
