NSCAD Academic Dates
Located in the heart of downtown Halifax’s cultural, financial and shopping district, NSCAD University does not maintain student residences. Students are therefore responsible for making their own housing arrangements in the Halifax/Dartmouth area. Affordable housing exists in a variety of neighborhoods within a short walking distance to the campus. Most students rent furnished rooms from private owners or share an apartment, flat or house with other students.
With five universities in the city, many students are seeking apartments at the start of the fall and winter semesters, so it’s wise to start searching at least two weeks before classes begin. Accommodations are generally much easier to find at the start of the summer semester in May."NSCAD Housing/Services
