Visiting UVic

We can tell you all about the facilities and services that make up the UVic campus. What we can't explain is how it feels to be a member of our energetic and supportive community—you really have to experience it for yourself!

Visit UVic in person to see our beautiful First Peoples House, get close to nature in Mystic Vale and eat at the new, West Coast-themed Mystic Market. Tour our classrooms, residences and athletic facilities, breathe in the fresh ocean air, and watch people play Frisbee and balance on slacklines in the Quad. It won't take long to understand why UVic students love the Vancouver Island lifestyle...and that's just scratching the surface.

Campus tours

Register for a campus tour through our Welcome Centre. Offered from Monday to Saturday, these tours are led by current students who will answer questions while showing you some of the best spots on campus.
