Residences & Housing

Moving In

Residences are open for all new and returning students not required to self-isolate.

You need to book a 1 hour move-in time slot in advance of your arrival. Please check your Acadia email or your message portal in StarRez to use the booking calendar.

Moving in your belongings

  • You can designate one support person (such as a family member or friend) to enter your Residence building to help you move in. Your support person must wear a non-medical face mask at all times while inside the building. The designated support person is not a transferrable role (i.e. family members cannot switch off at different times).

  • Other family and friends may be present to assist with unloading vehicles and say goodbyes, but they will not be permitted to enter any Acadia buildings. All family and friends visiting Acadia must be free from any symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of whether or not they will be entering the building. If a member of your support party feels sick, they must stay home.

  • Acadia welcome committee volunteers will be available to assist you moving into your residence room, but it is recommended that you pack lightly.
