Video Conferencing is 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 have been operated by University Systems using a cost recovery model. In order to reduce barriers and increase use of Video Conferencing, this service will now be offered at no cost* as a pilot for one year.
