About the Wong International Centre

Wong International CentreEstablished in 1997, the Wong International Centre (WIC) offers international students a “home away from home.” With the generous support of Gene D. Wong (’60), Acadia’s first graduate of Chinese descent, this Centre was created to provide support and information for Acadia’s many international students.

The Wong International Centre is a place to go to have your questions answered. Whether you need advice on applying for your income taxes or just need some help adapting to a new country—our Student Advisor and other staff members are here to provide you with the support you may need.

The WIC is located at 27 Acadia Street and is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. There are several internet drops throughout the house, as well as wireless internet access, a study room, and a kitchen where students can cook their favourite foods from home.

Mail Service at the University
