Parents play an important part in a student's journey

Be part of the journey

We know you want to feel connected to your student's academic journey. Learn about our co-op program, opportunities for involvement, and the many ways we provide students with support, from finance management to career planning.

Take a campus tour, attend parent orientation, and read our online parents' newsletter, The Fountain. It includes articles about issues, events, services and activities relevant to parents of new or prospective UVic students.

You'll find more information about the University of Victoria, including campus safety, housing and dining on the main UVic website.


Campus safety

Our students feel safe on campus. UVic received an A+ on students' overall satisfaction with sense of personal safety and security in the 2009 Globe and Mail's Canadian University Report.

Visit the Campus Safety page on the main UVic site for more details about Campus Security, the SafeWalk program, and personal safety coordinators.
