Important for September 2021 and January 2022:  We are excited to welcome students back to residence.  However, due to the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Brunswick reserves the right to delay residence occupancy or revoke residence accommodation offers completely.  For Fall/Winter 2021/2022, not all residence buildings, room types, or dining plans may be open/available as we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and follow all Public Health guidelines.
