Campus Planning

Physical changes at UVic are guided by the long-term vision and framework for development set out in the Campus Plan. Plan goals provide for a land use and building pattern that respects the unique physical environment and encourages social interaction, allows for safe pedestrian-friendly links throughout the campus, promotes compact sustainable development and operations, and the use of public transit, cycling and walking. The university is committed in its planning processes to developing and maintaining active communication and collaboration with all those affected by its physical changes.

UVic Campus Plan

Throughout 2015, UVic undertook an exciting year-long process to shape the future of the campus.

The Campus Plan establishes a refreshed vision and set of directions that will guide decision-making on matters ranging from buildings and transportation to open space and natural areas over the next ten years.

The new Campus Plan reflects information-gathering, background research, analysis, planning, and extensive engagement of diverse campus and broader community stakeholders, and it was approved by the Board of Governors on January 26th 2016.
