From Vancouver to UVic: As you exit the ferry terminal, you will be traveling on the Pat Bay Highway (Highway #17) towards the city of Victoria. The trip to UVic should take about 40 - 50 minutes depending on traffic. After about 10-15 minutes on the highway you will pass Elk and Beaver Lakes on your right. About 5 minutes further along you will come to the University of Victoria/ McKenzie Avenue exit. Stay in the right lane to access the off-ramp; then keep to the left-hand side of the exit lane. Turn left onto McKenzie Avenue. Once on McKenzie you will go through seven or eight traffic lights. Go through the intersection of McKenzie and Gordon Head Road, take your first right (before the stadium). The parking lot # 4 entrance is half way down the road, on your left hand side.
