Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre
Welcome Centre staff are always ready to help.

Whether you're a new student, a visitor to campus, or an alumnus, the Welcome Centre is your first point of contact in navigating the University of Victoria. It's also a great place for current members of our campus community to meet with friends, study in small groups or relax and unwind.

Located on the first floor of the University Centre, the Welcome Centre is open:

  • Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Welcome Centre staff will make sure you're directed to the right location, service or event on campus.
