Victoria has a large number of hotels, most of which are located near downtown Victoria. Tourism Victoria provides further accommodation information and reservation services, as does the Victoria and Vancouver Island Travel Guide and the Travel BC Accommodation Listings. Prices and availability will vary from season to season.

A particular favourite of CRM participants is Swans Hotel. If you wish to reserve there during the winter months, be sure to request the University of Victoria rate.


In addition to bed and breakfast facilities and hotels, you may want to consider a stay at a hostel in Victoria. The hostels are located in downtown Victoria, a convenient 20 minute bus ride away from the University.
