The Hebb Building, or Hebb, is a six-storey building located at the University of British Columbia's Point-Grey Campus[3]. It is used mainly by the UBC Department of Physics and Astronomy[3]. The Hebb Building is connected to the Hennings Building by a skywalk between the third floors of both buildings.


The original Hebb Building was built in 1964, and was named after Thomas Carlyle Hebb - the first Head of the UBC Department of Physics[2]. The building underwent an upgrade and renovations were completed in 2019[3].
