Experience university dorm life

You will be staying in Neville-Jones or Neill House. You will be sharing your room with one other person for the four weeks. There are separate gender wings and separate gender bathrooms.

There will be a message board so that we can call your attention to various things of importance, and you can leave messages for your fellow SHADs. Find out where the board is once you arrive, and check it often!

As you can imagine, planning a food menu for 80 SHADs plus all the live-in team members is a challenge. We make every effort to cater to different dietary restrictions and food allergies. These things must be planned ahead, thus it is to everyone’s benefit to let us know if you have a particular food allergy or dietary restrictions due to religious practice or personal choice.

If these restrictions are allergy related, please supply us with your complete medical background, Medicare number, and health plan details. The more information we have, the easier it will be to handle any situation that may arise.

About the campus

The University of New Brunswick is the oldest English-language university in Canada and one of the oldest public universities in North America. Established in 1785, UNB has a storied history and is known for its research, innovation and excellence in teaching. We have over 8,500 students and offer more than 75 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

With two main campuses in Fredericton and Saint John, the University of New Brunswick is large enough to offer a wide range of programs yet small enough for the professors to actually know your name.

UNB’s Fredericton campus, one of the most beautiful in Canada, features red-brick Georgian architecture that complements its riverside setting. The campus is safe, accessible and very student-friendly!

UNB Saint John provides a learning experience tailored to your interests. Classes are interactive with award winning instructors and provide opportunities for you to debate, question, work, and practice in labs or clinicals.
