UVic partners with Places4Students.com to provide off-campus listings for renters and landlords. Before committing to an apartment/suite/room and making any payments, we recommend that you:
- review the BC Tenancy Act
- meet the prospective landlord in person
- become familiar with potential rental scams
Important note: UVic and UVic Residence Services do not assume any responsibility for agreements made between students and landlords. We do not screen, inspect, warrant or approve any landlord, student or accommodation provided through Places4Students.com, and cannot guarantee the quality or suitability of the accommodation.
Living in residential Victoria is an important part of university life for the majority of UVic students. University of Victoria students are responsible for upholding the standards of the community, including adherence to city bylaws regarding issues like parking, noise, waste disposal and collection, and community safety.
