Tours & visits

The best way to experience UVic is by seeing it in person. We offer daily campus tours that are open to everyone. You’ll get a sense of our tight-knit community and gain a first-hand understanding of the UVic experience.

Daily campus tours

Our daily campus tours run Monday to Saturday, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. All our tours begin and end at the Welcome Centre, which is located on the main floor of the Jamie Cassels Centre. Make sure you book your spot.

Campus tours have been suspended indefinitely due to COVID-19.
