Where to find us 

The School of Music and the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall are located in the MacLaurin Building, B-Wing, on the west side of campus inside the Ring Road.


The MacLaurin Building is accessed from parking lot E (inside Ring Road) or parking lot 6 (outside Ring Road). A passenger drop-off area is located close to the building and parking stalls are available for patrons who are physically-challenged.

Pay Parking

*Paperless Pay By Licence parking process*

The University of Victoria charges for parking in all campus parking lots Monday through Saturday.

Parking can be purchased with coin or credit cards through automated machines. There are also several parking meters for short term visitor parking. Weekly, monthly, term, and annual passes are available through Campus Security Services.

Paper permits are no longer issued by the machines. Users must enter their licence plate number into the machine when paying and there is no need to return to your car afterwards. For more information on this process and the licence plate recognition monitoring program by Campus Security Services, read their detailed description here.

The revenue from pay parking offsets the cost of sustainable transportation programs at UVic, including subsidized student bus passes and cycling facilities. For more information contact Campus Security Services at 250-721-6683. 

Bus Access

The campus is accessible by BC Transit bus routes from anywhere in the city. The UVic bus terminal is located beside the UVic Bookstore, a 10-minute walk across campus from the MacLaurin Building. For more information and links to route maps and bus schedules, see the UVic Bus Routes page.
