Here's the new

UVic has a new online look just in time for the start of its 50th anniversary celebrations.

The renovated site replaces both the existing and central service pages and was developed in response to feedback from our audiences. The new look home page takes advantage of new developments and technological and social media advances to better meet the needs of its variety of users. The renovated site is the result of extensive consultation and user testing.

A ‘global menu’ bar spans the top of all new central web pages and is intended to provide one-click access to UVic’s most popular services and information sites such as the library, admissions, academics and research. If there’s an important notice or an emergency situation on campus, you’ll see an alert posted in this new space. Over time the global menu will be extended to all official university web pages.

A new current student pathway provides access to the services and information students want. From online study tools to stories by UVic students, this pathway gives students a direct link to the full UVic experience.

Each page in the central site features a left hand navigation menu of direct links to in-demand info and the home page feature photos will be refreshed frequently to reflect UVic events, accomplishments and news, and to provide greater visibility to the things that make UVic distinct.
