Introducing the UVSS COVID-19 Resource Hub

The UVSS is proud to represent all 19,000 members at UVic, but we recognize that COVID-19 requires additional specialized supports. We’ve compiled them all in one place for you, and will add info as the provincial and federal governments release information and we become aware of great resources for students.

UVSS Health & Dental Plan

Who’s Covered?

Undergrad students who are members of the UVSS and are registered in at least 3 units of on-campus classes in September or January including co-op or distance students are automatically covered by the UVSS Enhanced Health & Dental Plan.

Two Coverage Options?

UVSS Members now have access to a flexible benefit model that offers students two different coverage options, the Enhanced Plan (higher coverage at higher cost) and the Basic Plan (lower coverage at lower cost).

Change of Coverage

Choose your coverage plan , mix and match portions of both, or opt out during the Change-of-Coverage Period each year.

  • Fall: August 22nd and September 22nd
  • Winter: December 22nd to January 22nd
