Cannabis use

UVic is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our community. Like vaping and tobacco smoking, cannabis use on campus is restricted to specific areas. There are benches in the student residence precinct designated for cannabis smoking on campus. You should also remember that there are federal, provincial and municipal laws and bylaws that govern recreational cannabis use.

We encourage students to be self-reflective and self-aware so they can make informed decisions. Remember that cannabis use is a personal choice. UVic’s approach focuses on harm reduction and health promotion using evidence-based information.
