Video Conferencing will remain free of charge for faculty and staff

University of Victoria currently operates several Video Conferencing facilities of varying sizes that are located in the David Turpin (formerly Social Sciences & Mathematics) building. These facilities had been operated by University Systems using a cost recovery model. In order to reduce barriers and increase use of Video Conferencing this service was offered at no cost* as a pilot for one year.

We are pleased to announce the pilot was successful!  The elimination of charges significantly increased utilization of this service.  In order to continue to encourage increased utilization of this service, and the benefits it provides (such as travel reduction), we will continue to offer this service at no cost*.

We have also upgraded the technology in our Video Conferencing facilities with larger screens and high-definition capability, added a fourth room for additional capacity, and are also in the process of upgrading furniture.
