Many students say they chose Victoria University because of its beautiful campus and well-kept grounds. That is thanks to the dedicated work of the University's Grounds staff.
The 4-member staff takes a green approach to everything they do, and can answer questions about shrubs and plants on campus. Everything is recycled.
Grounds staff support student charity drives, including moving furniture to the Furniture Bank for new Canadians.
Wide range of responsibilities

Leaders in accessibility
