University Centre (UVC)
University Centre's combination of administrative offices, auditorium and art gallery is testimony to the many facets of the university. Built in 1978, the centre houses student affairs, marketing, the welcome centre, financial aid, admissions and records, graduate records and a cafeteria.
Musicians, lecturers and other performers play to capacity audiences in the 1200-seat University Centre Farquhar Auditorium. The auditorium is named for Hugh Farquhar (1910-1984), a former UVic president and dean of education who was a central figure in the planning and development of the University Centre.
