UVic campus open on Friday, Jan. 7

Campus will re-open on Friday, Jan. 7 with regular services in operation.

If you need to travel or be on campus please plan ahead, allow extra time and take care in your travels, wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and be prepared for icy and slushy conditions.

If your vehicle is not equipped for snow conditions, consider an alternate form of transportation.

For ease of travel, keep to main routes and building entrances as these will be cleared first of snow and ice. Allow extra time to find campus parking as not all lots will be fully cleared by Jan. 7. 

We thank you for your patience. Our Facilities Management staff are working as quickly as possible to clear campus of snow and ice. Report any unsafe conditions to Campus Security at 250-721-7599
