The University of Victoria (usually known as UVic) is a university in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It is a smaller university focusing on the arts, and is quite respected. The university has ~18,000 students. It attracts many students in part because of its location in the very popular town of Victoria. Despite its small size it has one of the best law schools in Canada.

The University is one of Canada's younger universities, having been given its charter in 1963. Before that it existed as Victoria College from 1903.

The current president of the university is David H. Turpin[?], and its chancellor is Norma Mickelson[?].
