Parking information
Lot 6 is closest to the conference venue.

Food options:

There is a pharmacy on campus in the Student Union Building.

The closest medical treatment centre (walk-in clinic) to campus is the Gordon Head Treatment Centre, near the intersection of Shelbourne Street and McKenzie Avenue (103-1595 McKenzie Avenue, (250) 477-4777). Two treatment centres that have a long-standing good reputation are the Oak Bay Treatment Centre and the Fairfield Treatment Centre.

Most of the best things in Victoria are free. Locals would pay for the Royal BC Museum, Butchart Gardens, kayaking, and possibly whale watching. For the latter, we recommend Five Star Charters and Ocean Explorations.
