What to Pack

International Student Services


There are a number of documents you will be required to bring with you if you are travelling from outside of Canada. Make sure you carry these documents on you when you travel as you may need to show them during customs. Visit the Canada Border Services Agency website for more information on travelling into Canada.

  • Passport
  • Letter of Introduction and/or Temporary Resident Visa
  • Grenfell Campus letter of acceptance


If you have a chronic medical condition it may be a good idea to bring a copy of you medical records with you. If you bring medications, make sure they are in the original packaging.

Pack the essentials

  • Clothing
  • Bed and bath linens
  • Toiletries
  • Laundry bag and detergent
  • Pillow
  • Dishes and cutlery

Stay warm

The weather in Newfoundland has four distinct seasons; winter, spring, summer and fall. Average winter temperatures can range from 0 degree Celsius to -20 degree Celsius. It is important to bring clothing suitable for this type of weather. It is easier to adapt to the changing temperatures when wearing layers.

Purchase a Care-Kit ($70)

It is important to consider that if you are landing in the middle of the night, you will not be able to go to a store right away. More than likely, you will be able to go on the next day. That means that, unless you packed sheets and a pillow with you, you will have to sleep directly on the mattress for your first night if you live at one of our on-campus residences. Purchasing a care-kit in advance ensures that you have the essentials waiting for you in your room and it frees up valuable space in your luggage. 

Reserve your care-kit now.
