New student orientation
New student orientation is a great way to find your footing.

There are all kinds of ways that you can connect with UVic. Whether you're interested in coming to meet us and tour our campus, or you want to talk with a recruiter while we're in your neck of the woods, this is the page to find out more information.


Meet our recruiters

Our team of recruiters are here to be your personal advocate and your number one source for UVic information.  It's their job to answer any and every question you have, so don't be shy about getting in touch with your biggest goals, longest questions or deepest fears - they're here for you right now through your first day on campus.

Tune us in

Join the hundreds of new and incoming UVic students on our My First Year @ UVic Facebook group. Students use the group to get their questions answered and find roommates, band mates, textbooks and must-dos over the summer before they get here. You can also follow @MyUVic on Twitter for timeline updates and quips from students, faculty and staff.


The best way to see what our campus has to offer is to experience it for yourself by taking a campus tour.

Tours begin at 1 pm Monday through Saturday at the Welcome Centre in the University Centre and are led by current UVic students with experience and knowledge about our campus. The Monday through Friday tours include an introductory presentation given by a recruitment liaison.

Ready for a crash course in everything you'd want to know about UVic?

Throughout the year, a number of live, interactive webinars are offered to prospective and admitted students - and you're invited to join the conversation. You can register for any session by completing our online webinar registration form. If you have any questions, please contact recruits@uvic.ca.

Upcoming webinars (all times are PST):

Our team of student recruitment officers will be traveling around North America and to various countries. They'll be meeting with students, parents and counsellors who are interested in learning more about what UVic has to offer.

Check our list of upcoming events to see if we'll be in your area. For more information, please contact the recruiter who will be visiting your area.
