New student residence in the works

UVic has begun planning for a new residence to provide muchneeded housing for undergraduate students. It’s the first significant capital project since the Campus Plan vision was renewed in 2016. Living on campus helps students with their transition to university, provides academic and social support, and nurtures a strong sense of community belonging. Students, faculty, staff, community members and other stakeholders are invited to help shape plans for the new residence. There’ll be many opportunities to share your ideas. Preliminary consultation will focus on engaging students about features within the new building. Look for pop-up tents near the SUB and Cadboro Commons on Oct. 3–4.

More information will be provided on the Campus Planning website when available.
