Moving In

International students who do not need to quarantine (self-isolate) are permitted to move in starting September 1st. If you have previously booked your travel, please reach out to Residence Life directly to arrange your move in.

For new domestic students not required to quarantine (self-isolate) upon arrival, the move in date for the Fall semester of 2021 is September 4th.

For returning students moving into residence and not required to quarantine (self-isolate) upon arrival, the move in date is set for the September 6th.

If you are driving to campus with your belongings, you are required to book an arrival timeslot. This can be done via the Residence Arrivals Survey which will be sent the week of July 18th. Be sure to check your email for this information to complete your booking.

We are anticipating that non-student guests (family and friends) will be able to assist students with moving in, provided they are not showing symptoms of COVID–19, are not required to quarantine (self-isolate) due to travel, wear a face mask at all times, and practice proper handwashing protocols when in the residence building. As well as your guests, volunteers will be available to assist you with the move-in process on both the 4th and 6th of September.

Students in Quarantine (Self-Isolation)

To find out if you are required to quarantine (self-isolate) upon arrival to Nova Scotia, please refer to our guidelines. If you are required to isolate upon arrival, the dates are as follows:

  • 14-day quarantine arrival: August 18-20, 2021
  • 7-day quarantine arrival: August 27, 2021

Please note that you will likely be assigned to a room for the quarantine period that is different from your room for the remainder of the term.
