Students enjoy some end of season gardening at UVic's Campus Community Garden


End of First Term

With the end of the term approaching, there's many considerations as an international student. Make sure you take care of important matters, such as housing and immigration documents, before you break for the lovely holidays!



Global Community December Events

Whether you are staying in Victoria over the winter break, or are simply looking for some fun, seasonal activities, check out the Global Community Events Calendar to see what’s in store for the month of December! Stop by our last weekly social of the term, join our End of term Celebration, grab a cup of hot chocolate while doing some winter colouring, see some holiday lights, and so much more! Join us as we come together and get into the winter and holiday spirit. 


Global Community End of Term Celebration

To celebrate the end of term, we invite all of the Global Community to gather and connect before the winter break at the Grad House, on December 7th from 5-7:00pm. In the spirit of the German holiday Saint Nicholas, we will reflect on the good times had this year while learning more about holiday traditions. Get into the winter and holiday spirit as we play some get-to-know you activities, compete in a trivia game, make some snowflake decorations, practice gratitude, and take part in some seasonal fun. Don’t miss out, RSVP on Engage!
