Transportation & parking

UVic is easily accessible by public transit, bike or carshare. For cyclists, we have our Campus Bike Centre, which offers a brightly-lit and secure space to leave your bike.

Students board a BC transit bus while another student places their bike on the front rack.

Sustainable transportation

We’re committed to making transportation to UVic as sustainable as possible. From bike sharing and carpooling to public transit, there are many sustainable ways to get to campus.

Taking transit to UVic

UVic provides subsidized bus passes to all students. Our bus loop is one of the most active transit hubs in Greater Victoria, making it easy to travel to and from campus by bus.

Please visit the BC Transit website for route information.
