Event information

Whether you're applying for September 2017, or just thinking ahead, Explore UVic is your chance to see what we're all about.

Find your UVic Edge

Start your day by learning everything you need to know about life at UVic:

  • get an overview of admissions for high school students and transfer students, as well as the next steps after you apply
  • participate in a Student Experience Panel to get your questions answered by current UVic students
  • learn how we support you throughout your time at UVic.

Attend a faculty open house

Check out our faculty open houses and see yourself as a UVic student:

  • meet people from the faculties of Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences, as well as the Gustavson School of Business*
  • see the buildings where you’ll take classes and study with your friends
  • learn about our academic programs and departments.

Get the support you need

Visit our information fair in the Bob Wright Centre (BWC) from 9:00-1:00 to learn about the resources available to you from the moment you arrive until the day you graduate.

From co-operative study and scholarships to residence, food services and more, there's lots to discover.

See UVic for yourself

Join a campus tour to see our residences, First Peoples House, Student Union Building, University Centre and CARSA! Your guide will be a current student who can tell you all about UVic.

Campus tours take 75-90 minutes, and depart from the BWC North Lawn at 9:15, 11:00, and 3:45.

When it's time to eat, lunch is on us! We're serving complimentary pizza and drinks (including vegetarian and gluten-free options).
