Before You Arrive | Fredericton Residence | UNB

Before you arrive

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. 

Before you arrive, we suggest you review our residence contract. You will be required to sign this on move-in day before you receive your keys and check-in to residence. If you are under 19 years of age, your parent or guardian will also be required to sign the residence contract prior to you checking in. 

There are a number of other things you can do to ease your transition to UNB before you arrive in September. Below you’ll find a list of tips from our Orientation Team.
