Residence will open for new students to UNB on Saturday, September 1, 2018.
The check in dates for students can be found in the Residence Contract.
During check-in for the 2018-19 academic year our front desk will be open additional hours.
When you arrive on campus, go directly to the Student Union Building (SUB) at 21 Pacey Drive.
At the SUB you’ll get your keys, sign your Residence Contract, and be sent to your new house where the HOC (House Orientation Committee) will be waiting to welcome you and your family and help you move in!
For more on Check-in Day, such as late arrivals, starting your meal plan, and other details, visit the Orientation website.
UNB Residence Life is only able to offer early check-ins to students belonging to approved early arrival groups. Residence Life support staff are not in our buildings until Sept. 1, 2018, therefore we require a university official (faculty, staff, coach, etc.) to be present prior to this. The group leader(s) is responsible for making early arrival requests and acting as the main point of contact for Residence Life, as well as being a resource and contact for their students.
All early arrival requests must be submitted by Friday, July 13, 2018 and a full list of students requiring early accommodations must be provided no later than Friday, Aug. 3, 2018.
Approved early arrival categories include:
Early academic requirements
- Varsity athletes
- Campus leadership training
- New international students
Early arrival fees
Early arrivals fall outside of the Residence Contract period and therefore are subject to an early arrival fee of $30 per night. These fees will be added to your account unless your group leader has arranged to cover these fees. We do extend a 48 hour grace period, so this fee does not apply to students arriving between Aug. 30, 2018 and Sept. 1, 2018.
It is also important to note that if you wish to access campus dining facilities a dining fee of $20 per day will be charged to your student account until the official opening of residence on Sept. 1, 2018. If you do not wish to pay this fee, you will be responsible for your own meals.
