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.
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.
Academic advisers are an invaluable resource for students. They can help you plan your program, decide which courses to take and find out which courses you can transfer to UVic.
