High school group tours

Teachers and counsellors can arrange customized tours for groups of high school students (grades 9-12), which may include:

  • walking tours of the UVic campus (up to 80 minutes)
  • admissions discussions with UVic recruiters
  • question-and-answer sessions with current students talking about their experiences at UVic

High school group tours are offered from Monday to Friday, and are not available on statutory holidays.

Teachers and counsellors must arrange these visits at least two weeks in advance, and are encouraged to do so as soon as possible in order to book their preferred dates. All tour bookings are subject to availability.
