University of Victoria Reviews
UVic is in general a very positive place with lovely people, and the campus is absolutely beautiful. However, tuition is a little on the expensive side. Most of the profs that I’ve had have been very fair and understanding, and usually assign a manageable courseload. I lived on campus first year, and cafeteria food is not great, so I would suggest going to Mystic Market when you can, because your residence meal plan applies there as well (something I unfortunately didn’t figure out until 2nd semester).
Very good community feel. The campus is beautiful. The cafeteria food could definitely be improved as well as the residents. Also some of the facilities are lacking.
I personally had a great first year experience and met a lot of people in my building. I definitely recommend living on campus your first year of university/college. I also joined the sailing team, which is where I met a lot of my friends. I have a few friends from this that are in my same program and therefore classes, so that was really helpful in class. Living on campus my first year and joining the club I did positively contributed to the social and academic aspects of my life, which has caused me to have a great experience at the University of Victoria. It also has a great campus and is relatively close to the water (a 5min walk down to the beach), which was a deciding factor in choosing the school. Victoria is also a great city to be near and there is always great things to do in the downtown area.
