The UVSS Third Space is a place for all self-identified women, non-binary, and gender fluid persons to find comfort and safety.

WELCOME BACK! We hope you had a good break.

What is new in 2017?

COMPUTERS: We will have our new computer stations installed in the Third Space library next week. The new systems will can be upgraded in the future and we hope will service the demand for computers in the space for many years to come. The two new machines are running Windows 10, one machine with a 24 inch screen, and the second machine with a 32 inch desktop to assist those with visual needs. The Apple desktop will also still be in service for Mac users. So, the library will have 3 functioning computers and the printer as well.

DOOR LOCKS: Hopefully the key lock boxes will be installed soon and we can provide some additional access and hours to the centre. Key lock boxes are a keypad entry system that will allow us to provide access on request without having to provide keys. This keeps our space secure and provides us with an improved way of providing access during weekends and other school closure periods. If you have further questions please email us at thirdspace@uvic.ca.

COFFEE MAKER AND KETTLE: We have a new kettle which is amazing. Also, we have a new coffee maker. Daphne will be picking up a filter and coffee this week so the coffee maker should be in service next week.

SAFER SEX SUPPLIES AND MENSTRUAL PRODUCTS: We have a new shipment of external condoms in and they are out in the hallway. We have pregnancy tests available on request. We have loads of menstrual pads and also tampons. We hope to be getting some internal condoms soon. If you have any requests please let us know.
