Location

This following sections provide information on accommodation, ways to reach the University of Victoria, and information on Visas.

Accommodation

From past experience, we have found that many conference attendees prefer to arrange their own accommodation.

There are many hotels/motels in downtown Victoria at various price ranges. A 20 minute bus trip provides convenient transportation between downtown and the University.

Some helpful information regarding accommodation may be found at Tourism Victoria.
