Student life

group of students

Your student experience isn't just about what you study - it's about the community in which you learn, grow, play and cheer. At UVic, you'll find that you can be part of the team without losing your individuality.

Health & wellbeing

Health and wellbeing are essential to student success. Whether you need to see a health practitioner, a way to relieve some stress, want someone to talk to or just a way to stay active, we have some great options for you.

Arts & culture

Victoria is a vibrant cultural hub, and campus is no different. Take in a student production at our Phoenix Theatre, catch a concert, watch a movie, or immerse yourself in modern art - all at UVic.

Athletics & recreation

We have one of the most successful university athletics programs in Canada, but you don’t need to be an athlete to get involved. Play some dodgeball, cheer on a basketball team or get your glow on at a yoga rave.

Clubs & organizations

There are over 200 student clubs on campus. From swing dance to game development to the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, there really is something for everyone.

Leadership & volunteering

Get involved in a meaningful way on campus. You'll make new friends, gain new skills, and most importantly, give back to a cause that matters to you.
