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!

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.
