Campus tours

Seeing truly is believing when it comes to getting a feel for UVic and our community. Whether you're an island local or visiting from overseas, we encourage you to check out what's going on at UVic.

Register for a campus tour

Campus tours have been suspended due to COVID-19, but registration is open for future campus tours. In the event that tours are cancelled, registrants will be informed via email.

  • 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 90 minutes in length, and typically include a look inside one of our residence rooms (subject to availability).
  • All tours begin at the UVic Welcome Centre, located on the main floor of the University Centre.

Register for a tour up to three months in advance. Online registration closes one hour before the tour starts, or when capacity is reached.
