Coming to campus?

You may be studying online, but you are still welcome on campus — whether you are enrolled in a blended course, are attending a lab session, need access to a safe and quiet study space, or want to visit the library.

If you are coming to campus, we ask you to carefully read our safety guidelines.


Stay connected with the UFV community

While studying remains your primary focus, there is more to UFV than just classes. We are here to help you find new ways to experience your online semester to the fullest and navigate all aspects of student life.

Check out below some of the ways you can stay engaged with the UFV community while studying remotely.


Socialize with other students and find new hobbies


Join one of UFV's 65+ student clubs or associations, or attend an event with myCampusLife. This is a great way to meet new people with similar interests and participate in virtual activities such as trivia nights, art workshops, or book clubs. Can’t find a club in the listing? Create your own.

Alec's headshot

I love UFV's size. It's small enough that my learning feels personal and my teachers know me and care about my success. It's large enough to choose from a great selection of resources, events, and amenities.

Student Life has always been my biggest source of support. Whether my problems are academic or personal, there is always someone at UFV that can lend a hand. Don't be afraid to ask for help!
