Destination Acadia


Please note that due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Acadia University is unable to confirm bookings for the use of space on campus for the public until further notice. We regret the inconvenience this may cause and look forward to working with you once the campus opens to the public.

Welcome to Destination Acadia. Imagine a place where history, culture, and adventure come together in perfect harmony. A place where food, wine, music, and sports are woven into the everyday fabric of life. A place where young and old enjoy shopping, casual conversation, and a pace of life that is becoming increasingly rare.

Acadia University is one of Canada’s oldest and most picturesque universities and a preferred destination for students worldwide for almost 200 years.

Acadia is also an increasingly preferred destination for organizations who want to leverage the assets that come with a 200 acre university campus located in the heart of Wolfville and the spectacular Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

Acadia is the perfect venue for sports organizations and groups who want to combine exceptional athletic competition and training facilities with high quality meeting space, low cost accommodation, and excellent food prepared by our professional staff.

Acadia has cost-competitive facilities that can only be found on a university campus:

  • An all-weather sports field and outdoor running track
  • An Olympic-size ice rink
  • A gymnasium and training facility
  • A high-performance training centre with on-site athletic therapy services
  • Change and locker rooms that can accommodate teams and competitors in a range of sports
  • Classrooms and meeting spaces fully equipped with technology; data projectors/flat screens, high speed wired and wireless internet access and services to support a high-level learning environment.

Acadia’s residence rooms are specifically suited to accommodating large groups who require flexible schedules.

Our dining hall features one of the most spectacular views of the Minas Basin and offers on-site food options that range from simple buffet service to gourmet dining using locally sourced produce.

In addition to larger conferences and conventions, Acadia has hosted everything from meetings to weddings in its many beautiful campus venues and also offers single night accommodation to day travelers during the summer months.
