Daily campus tours

Sign up for a campus tour to learn about the services UVic offers for students and see some of our favourite spots on campus, from residences and classrooms to athletics facilities and dining locations. Tours are led by UVic students who love to share their personal experiences with visitors!

  • Tours are available from Monday through Saturday, starting at 1:00 p.m., and are not offered on Sundays or statutory holidays.
    • Additional tours may be offered at times of high demand (e.g. spring break)
  • Tours are approximately 75 minutes in length, not including information sessions with UVic recruiters.
  • All tours begin and end at the UVic Welcome Centre, located on the main floor of the University Centre.

Most campus tours include opportunities to speak with UVic recruiters about academic programs and admission requirements (subject to the availability of a recruiter). These information sessions are an additional 15-30 minutes on top of the 75-minute walking tour.

In addition to booking a tour, you can also schedule a personal appointment with a recruiter by emailing .
