When arriving in Canada, you must quarantine yourself for 14 days before you can come to campus. This is mandatory, even if you have no symptoms.
Find a place to stay during your 14-day quarantine
Hotels can provide you with a temporary solution if you need short-term housing or if you are looking for a place to stay during your 14-day quarantine. After your quarantine period is completed, you will be able to transition to long-term stay accommodation which can be on or off-campus. We recommend that you start looking for accommodation as early as possible.
On this page, you will find short-term housing options in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver areas.
