Are students living in residence required to buy a meal plan?
Yes, all students living in residence at Vic are required to purchase a meal plan. We have different options available to accommodate the needs of our students. Our residences are also equipped with kitchens so students can prepare some of their own meal.

What style of Residences do you have?
At Vic, we offer traditional dormitory style (both female and co-ed) as well as apartment style.
