Visit UVic from anywhere in the world, virtually

Hang out on the quad, explore the library, learn about our faculties, and take in the natural beauty of the UVic campus—all without leaving your home.

UVic’s virtual tour, which officially launched Oct. 8, is an interactive online tool that provides an authentic and engaging way for prospective students to explore our spectacular campus.

Three UVic students guide visitors through the places they live and learn, including popular spaces, buildings, faculties and programs. There are currently 16 stops, each with video descriptions and photos. Most of the stops include 360-degree panoramas and other dynamic content, and new photos and video can be added at any time to keep the tour fresh and up-to-date. 

The new virtual tour is a great way to experience UVic’s extraordinary academic environment from anywhere in the world, and it reinforces our position as a top choice for hands-on, research-inspired learning.

The project is a collaborative effort between University Communications + Marketing and Student Recruitment and Global Engagement. It uses YouVisit’s platform, which can be viewed on desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, social platforms and virtual reality headsets. YouVisit is the only product of its kind on the market. It’s used by many universities in the US—including Harvard, Yale and Stanford—and is quickly being adopted by Canadian universities.
