Housing and Transportation
Where you live and how you get to your classes are important parts of university life.
Nipissing provides the information you need to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or look for off-campus housing. If you live off campus, you will also get information about public transportation options and parking services to help you with your commute.
Nipissing offers you your own private room in 1 of 2 styles of housing: 3 suite-style residences and 1 townhouse complex, all within walking distance to campus.

Residence life is about more than where you live – it is where you will find a community. With a senior student mentor to guide you, you will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that complements what you are learning inside the classroom while you get to know students from different programs.
