Safety & Respect

Alcohol safety

Dalhousie supports responsible choices involving alcohol for students (19+). In addition to endorsing Canada's low-risk drinking guidelines, Dal has additional resources available to students, staff and faculty. 


Raising awareness of consent, safety, and sexual violence and keeping the dialogue going are key to creating a culture of respect. Visit the Get Consent page for information on: 

Diversity & Inclusion

Dalhousie is respectful, inclusive and encourages acceptance on our campuses. After all, diverse experiences & perspectives are what make Dal a great place to be! 

In the community

Halifax and Truro are great places to live for many reasons. In addition to academic responsibilities, students also have responsibilities as community residents. 

Security Services
