Founded in 1903 as Victoria College on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, UVic's location is draw enough for many, with its balmy summers and temperate winters. It gained degree-granting status in 1963 and its 463-acre campus accommodates some 19,400 students and 2,400 academic staff grouped into 10 faculties and two divisions.
