Our Residence Services team is happy to assist you 24 hours a day.
Due to restrictions made by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) under the BC Public Health Act and UVic regulations we will not be offering visitor accommodation in our Residences during summer of 2021. Please contact us in the fall for information on Summer 2022.

Nestled between the ocean and the forest with stunning mountain views, the University of Victoria enjoys an enviable location. Our campus is located on 402 acres of beautiful, park-like property, just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria and within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean, as well as many shops and restaurants. 

Whether you’re visiting UVic for a conference, meeting, sporting event, school outing, or other educational endeavour connected to the University, we have comfortable room choices available to suit various needs and budgets.

Please review our terms and conditions which include check-in and check-out times, payment, and other requirements.

We are expanding!
UVic is planning for new student housing that will provide much needed on-campus housing. The first building will open in September of 2022, and the second building in 2023. Please be aware that the construction of the new student housing and dining project in the residence precinct continues to be active throughout the 2022 summer season.

You should expect ongoing disruption, including noise and dust, however, the University will do everything we are able to do to ensure that the construction process is as smooth as possible. Please note that there will be no compensation or discounts due to construction and/or relocation.

For more information on this project, please visit the New Student Housing and Dining site.
