The Division of Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs (STUA) was created in July 2009 with the merging of Student & Ancillary Services and the Office of the Registrar and Enrolment Services. The amalgamation has improved the UVic student experience by creating a more comprehensive and integrated service environment and has also provided more opportunities for staff to collaborate within the unified student support team.
