Finding suitable accommodations has been particularly challenging for international students. Therefore, arranging for housing in advance before your arrival is essential. You don’t want to sleep on the street upon arrival, do you?
The most convenient accommodations for international students are the campus residence. Once you have decided to live on campus, you should start to apply as soon as possible since the number of rooms is limited. Note: The deposit for your residence application is NOT refundable under any circumstances. Applications will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Apply here.
If you prefer to live off campus, you will probably be unfamiliar with the local housing market and may face language and cultural barriers. Here we prepared a short video to help you understand different types of accommodations in Nova Scotia.
