Parking areas

Visual Arts is accessed from parking lot 6 or parking lot 10 on the west side of the UVic Campus. A passenger drop-off area and accessible parking stalls are located close to the building in lot 6.

Pay Parking 

The University of Victoria charges for parking in all campus parking lots Monday through Saturday (except for statutory holidays).

Parking can be purchased with coin or credit cards through the automated machine in any parking lot. Users must enter their licence plate number into the machines when paying. For more information on this process and the licence plate recognition monitoring program by Campus Security Services, read their detailed description here.

There are also several parking meters for short term visitor parking. Weekly, monthly, term, and annual passes are available through Campus Security Services.

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

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