Whether your student lives in residence or in off campus housing, there’s a lot for them to learn when living outside the family home.
For the first time they will be living with people who don’t love them unconditionally.
Discuss living with others–respect for property and privacy, sharing, contributing and open communication as a way to solve conflict.
Living in residence offers convenience, opportunities for making friends and for participating in house events. It’s an excellent transition to independent living.
UNB has one of the largest residence communities in Atlantic Canada. Students may choose from among 14 residence houses — co-ed, female-only or male-only.

Fredericton is a friendly city with a wide variety of off-campus accommodations. For helpful hints on living off campus, check out our online Handbook for Off-Campus Living.
The listings include colour photos of the accommodations and helpful details such as what utilities are included with the rent. The students who compile the listing have personally visited every house to make sure the accommodations meet their high standards.
Many students will choose to live at home and commute to campus. To get the most from their university experience, encourage your student to become involved in on-campus activities, such a sports and clubs, social events and volunteer opportunities. These activities can enrich students’ lives, lead to lasting friendships, and improve academic performance.
