Tours & visits

Daily campus tours

Sign up for a campus tour to learn about the services UVic offers for students and see some of our favourite spots on campus, including faculty buildings, athletics facilities and dining locations. Tours are led by UVic students who love to share their personal experiences with visitors!

Your tour will include a look inside a single-bed residence room in Čeqʷəŋín ʔéʔləŋ (Cheko’nien House) or Tower (depending on the size of the tour group). To protect the privacy and safety of current UVic students, we don't accept requests to see specific rooms or residence buildings.

Daily campus tours are offered Monday through Saturday, and are not available on Sundays or statutory holidays. Tours can be booked up to three months in advance.

Group tours

We offer customized tours for high schools, colleges, and other student groups who are interested in attending UVic in the future (e.g. Indigenous, youth and agency groups).
