About the student accommodation

Excited to start your study abroad journey, but feel nervous about accommodation? A homestay program would be a great option. Living with a Canadian family is one of the best ways to improve your English, learn about our culture and adapt to a new life in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Our homestay families are carefully chosen by our Accommodations Coordinator. Our families live in safe residential neighbourhoods within a 30 to 50-minute bus ride.

  • Most families live outside of the downtown core in residential areas.

  • You will have your own furnished room for privacy and study.

  • You can join in family activities and in the evenings enjoy dinner and conversation.

  • Your host family will provide you with 3 nutritious meals a day. You may be asked to prepare your own breakfast and/or lunch.

  • Your family will help you discover Halifax and settle in.

  • We will try to match you with the most appropriate family. Please remember that we may not be able to meet all your preferences.

  • Our Accommodations Coordinator is available to help you with any concerns.
