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 for approximately 600 students currently living off-campus. Please be aware that preparation work will start during the spring and summer of 2019 in the Residence Services precinct bringing some unavoidable disruption, noise and dust.
