University District Real Estate Strategy

UVic has a vision for a new mixed-use university district. It will make the UVic campus more inclusive, connected and accessible, and diversify revenue streams to support university priorities in the years to come.

Learn about our University District Real Estate Strategy

The Ian Stewart Complex and adjacent lands on Gordon Head Road in the District of Saanich will be the first phase of the University District project. These properties are close to transit, amenities and the main campus.

The Ian Stewart Complex is nearing the end of its lifecycle. This, combined with nearby amenities, makes this site the natural first phase of development. Adoping a phased development approach is critical to the successful implementation of this strategy. 

Community engagement

Community engagement is an essential part of planning for a new mixed-use university district. The campus and neighbourhood engagement process will follow the university’s Community Engagement Framework. Please check back for opportunities to get involved. Opportunities for future engagement will be shared broadly.
