Dormitories

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.

Our economical single and twin rooms provide you with a single bed and access to a shared semi-private or group bathroom. Housekeeping service is provided every fourth day for short-term stays.
