Accommodations:Since the New Brunswick Community College doesn't have residences for its students, NBCC International will work with international students, and campuses to identify suitable accommodations for the academic year. Each campus also publishes a list of current accommodations available in the community. We realize some international students may have difficulty in identifying suitable accommodations. Therefore, NBCC will follow up with all accepted international students to ensure that they have secured accommodations for their academic year.
The NBCC location receiving the student will provide the following service on behalf of the student:
- Contact the student by email to ascertain the type of accommodations the student prefers (including range of cost for rent). You can review general listings of accommodations available by checking out our NBCC campuses page for local info: Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton, Saint John, St. Andrews and Woodstock.
- The location will follow up with each international student to ensure they secure accommodations once they arrive at NBCC.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient funds in your bank account to pay for your rental accommodations.
