Quarantine Connect


Staying connected

We know this is a challenging time for students entering Canada and Nova Scotia. Dalhousie is here for you during this process to provide support and information during your 14-day quarantine and beyond. We encourage you to maintain close virtual contact with friends and family during your quarantine period. It’s also important to stay connected with your fellow students. You are not alone!

(Note: International students can visit the Immigration & COVID-19 Updates page for information about quarantine, testing, travel requirements, health and safety guidelines, and more.)

Supports and resources to explore while you're in quarantine:

The International Centre provides support, information, advising, and programming for international students, including the International Student Peer Mentorship Program.

Use the Dal Mobile app to connect to your fellow students, ask questions about the upcoming semester, and stay updated on news and events. 

New students should check out Dalhousie's Information for New Students webpage for helpful tips, a new student checklist, important dates, and more.

Graduate students should visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies website to stay up-to-date on your program's information and updates.

While in quarantine you can still research things to do once you're able to explore the city. Visit Dalhousie's Life in Halifax webpage to find out about restaurants, shops, events, culture, and more. 

COVID-19 information, guidelines, and restrictions are frequently changing. Students can visit Dalhousie's COVID-19 Information & Updates page to stay informed on updates.

Learn about the student experience at Dalhousie by checking out the Dal Student Life Hub, a space where your fellow students share their personal stories, photos, and tips.

For students attending the Agricultural Campus in Truro, be sure to check out the campus website for updates specific to your program.

Visit Dalhousie's Money Matters webpage for information on tuition/fees, scholarships, bursaries, and more. 

Review the Student Event Calendar for information about upcoming events. Many events are currently being held virtually, so you'll be able to attend online while in quarantine.
