How to apply for a home purchase loan

UVic's home purchase loan supports eligible new faculty members and librarians in the purchase of a first home in Victoria by providing up to $50,000 for a five-year interest-free loan.


The home purchase loan program is available to:

  • New faculty members who hold regular, tenured or tenure track appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor.
  • The program also applies to the following categories of new faculty and new librarians who hold regular appointments: Assistant Teaching Professors, Teaching Professors, Artists-in-Residence, Academic Administrators, and Librarians. 
  • This program does not apply to anyone with a limited term appointment.


An Eligible Member must normally apply for the Home Loan no later than five years after the start date of their appointment. Requests to extend the eligibility period will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If the Member plans to purchase a residence prior to the effective date of their appointment, they may apply at any time after the appointment has been approved by the Vice-President Academic and Provost.
