**The University Centre Cafeteria is now closed for a major renovation and will re-open in fall 2014. The eight-month project will see a shift from a cafeteria-style model to a market-style concept where food is freshly prepared before the customer. The new facility, to be named Mystic Market, will set a new standard in campus dining.

UVic is committed to the health and safety of students, staff, faculty and visitors. Please use caution near construction areas.

Efforts are being made to minimize the impact of construction activities on building occupants and users of the facility. However, due to the nature of construction work, temporary disruptions may occur.

Thank you for your patience. We apologize for any inconvenience during the construction period.

Updates on the project can be found at
