Welcome Centre

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

Whether you're a new student, a visitor to campus, an alumnus or a current member of the campus community, the Welcome Centre is your first point of contact in navigating the University of Victoria.

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

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

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

An academic adviser for the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences will be on hand in the Welcome Centre on an on-going basis to assist first-year students with course selection and degree planning:

  • April 2014: Monday through Friday (excluding holidays): 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • May - August 2014: hours TBD

You must pre-book an appointment with the adviser by signing-up in person in the Welcome Centre or by emailing advising@uvic.ca.

Get more information on academic advising for incoming students on the Academic Advising Centre site.

The Welcome Centre's student ambassadors will offer registration assistance for students in the Victoria area who are having trouble registering for courses online, corresponding with the beginning of each term. Please check this site towards the start of the next term, for specific dates.

Registration support is offered on a drop-in basis, as a supplemental service to the main Registration Help service.

For ongoing assistance throughout the year, please email reghelp@uvic.ca, or telephone 250-721-8142.
