This is your chance to meet other new UFV students, and ask your student tour guide about what it's like to study at UFV. Whether you're a brand new student at UFV, or you've been studying with us for a while, wayfinding tours will help you navigate the Abbotsford and Chilliwack UFV campuses with confidence!
Please note that campus wayfinding tours provided by the Orientation team for the Fall 2022 semester have a limited capacity, and are only available to UFV students currently enrolled in one or more courses this upcoming semester.
As always, campus tours are also available by request for current and future UFV students, and their parents/supporters, any time through the Future Students webpage

UFV is located in the traditional territory of the Stó:lō peoples, where Halq’améylem is spoken. The Halq’améylem word given to us for New Student Orientation (NSO) is Tl’etl’axel, which means "to invite people to gather in one community."
