Communications & marketing

Students in the Welcome Centre

University Communications + Marketing (UC+M) provides a strategic approach to help you achieve your goals—whether they’re enrolment, fundraising or reputation-related.

We offer many different areas of expertise, including social media, digital signage and photo services. We provide the strategic communication advice and resources to help you tell your story as part of the UVic Edge.

The UVic Edge

The UVic Edge brand gives our story a consistent message, look and tone. The Edge helps us highlight our key messages and gain recognition for our accomplishments. The Edge sets us apart from our competitors.

Internal communications

Strong internal communications promote a sense of shared purpose and collaboration across campus. We can help you communicate your message across campus and beyond.

We also publish The Ring, UVic’s community newspaper, and Campus Checklist, a campus news digest delivered to all faculty and staff.

Media relations

Our media relations team connects our university community with local, regional, national and international print and broadcast media. They can also help to ensure your area’s point of view is communicated effectively if you are involved in an issue.


Photo Services offers a full range of professional services. Download photos for your website from our image gallery or book a studio portrait.

Promotional materials

Whether it’s digital signage or engaging graphics to promote your event, our creative development and strategic marketing teams will work with you to tell your story in a way that works with UVic’s look and feel.

Posters on campus

You can promote events and initiatives with posters on notice boards in most UVic buildings. You must get your posters approved first by visiting the UVSS Information Booth in the STUB or the ONECard Office. The ONECard Office can also distribute posters for a small fee.

Review the guidelines for posters on campus.


Your online presence is a key part of your communications strategy. We can help you make it the most effective tool for the audiences you need to reach.
