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.

Residence communities

Residence is more than just a place to live, it's a place where you'll get involved, deepen your interests and grow as a person. Our communities offer you the chance to live with other students who share your interests, blending your residential and academic experiences and supporting your lifestyle.
