Wellness, Recreation & Athletics

Wellness, Recreation and Athletics is focussed on creating a new model for student health and wellbeing while advancing our commitment to excellence in varsity athletics. Our goal is to help students thrive so that they can achieve their personal and academic goals.

Wellness, athletics and recreation at any level are a big part of life at UVic. Our popular recreational options are designed to suit everyone from competitive athletes to occasional treadmill users and our student varsity teams are some of the best in the country. Plus, our Student Wellness team brings together a team of counsellors, nurses, physicians, spiritual care providers and more to care for students holistically.
