Student housing

girl in residence room

UVic student housing is more than just a place to live. Here you’ll find a supportive community and new friends. Plus, live close to classes, the library and all the resources UVic has to offer.

Room types

Our student housing is grouped into neighbourhoods. Each has its own community leaders, activities and events. Most residence buildings are mixed gender, but some feature designated single gender floors.

Living learning communities

Living learning communities (LLCs) bring students with common interests or areas of study together:

  • arts collective
  • business community
  • engineering community
  • global citizenship community
  • health and wellness community
  • humanities community
  • leadership and civic engagement
  • science community
  • sustainability community
