Student Housing is an exciting place to live as it adds to the experience you will have as a newcomer to Grenfell.

Students are encouraged to arrive NO EARLIER than the dates below:

Fall 2015: Saturday, September 5, 00:01am

Winter 2016: Monday, January 4, 10:00am

If you are planning on arriving earlier than the dates posted above you may have to incur additional expenses to stay in a hotel until your room is ready. You will also need to inform the Student Housing Office to let them know of your intended arrival date.

Care Kit Program

It is important for you to be aware that Student Housing does NOT provide bedding or linens in rooms. You will need to bring those items with you or purchase them during your first few days here. Therefore, Student Services is offering new international students the option to purchase a CARE KIT package. Care Kit will include the following items:
  • 1 Twin sheet set,
  • 1 pillow,
  • 1 Twin blanket/comforter,
  • 1 towel,
  • 1 hand towel,
  • 1 wash cloth
If you would like to order a care kit, you can do so when you submit your airport pickup request form. Please note that all orders for kits must be processed through the Airport Request Form or you can email if you have any problems with the forms. Kits are being offered for $50 Canadian CASH ONLY. Please have your payment available upon arrival to receive your kit.


***Deadline to order your kit is Sunday, August 23rd for the Fall Semester and Sunday, November 29th for the Winter Semester ***

In order to receive a kit upon arrival you will have to pre-order so it is important to do that prior to travelling to Grenfell Campus.
