Prepare to self-isolate
All visitors to Nova Scotia are required to self-isolate for 14 days, except for those travelling within the "Atlantic Bubble" (Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island or New Brunswick). Visit the Nova Scotia Government Coronavirus website for the latest public health directives.
Dalhousie University's Halifax campus is located in the south end of Halifax, about a half-hour drive from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, and a 15-minute walk to downtown.
Getting to campus
You can get specific directions to your residence and various campuses using our interactive campus map. Select the "Get Directions" tab along the top.
If you are arriving by air, numerous licensed taxi and limo operators are available at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, as well as various car rental services. Most taxi companies servicing the airport charge a flat rate to travel to the city.
A Metro Transit bus also provides regular service to and from the airport for a flat fee. The special MetroX Bus operates every 30 minutes during peak morning (6 a.m. - 9 a.m.) and afternoon (3 p.m. - 6 p.m.) times, and every 60 minutes during regular hours. The bus will take you as far as downtown Halifax, from where you can then take a cab or another city bus to your final destination. Please see the Metro Transit website for complete routes and schedules.
NOTE: If you are travelling from outside the Atlantic provinces and are required to self-isolate, you may not use public transit. Please see above for information on taxi services. See the Province of Nova Scotia Coronavirus website for details on travel restrictions to Nova Scotia from outside Atlantic Canada.
By train or bus
If you arrive by train or bus, you can take a taxi from the station to Dalhousie University. You could also catch a Metro Transit bus.
