Acadia University Campus Life

Student Life

You want to make the most of any experience. We love that our students feel the same way.

With over 80 clubs and more than 100 volunteer opportunities, whatever whatever your interest, Acadia probably has an extra-curricular activity that's perfect for you. And if not, you're free to create one of your own.

An incredible 80% of our students volunteer. That says a lot about the type of student who chooses Acadia. Many help children with special needs through our S.M.I.L.E program or volunteer to raise raise money for local charities through Axes in Action and Relay for Life. And some take it international with programs such as our student-started chapter of Global Brigades. The Brigade helps build houses and schools, and provides medical supplies in Honduras.

We offer Co-Curricular Transcripts as well as academic transcripts. All of your extra-curricular activities can be recorded and vetted by Acadia. This helps provide a full picture of your time here for prospective employers.

Residence Info

You want to be the centre of all the action. We have just the place.

Moving away from home can seem daunting, but Acadia will quickly become your new home. All first-year students are guaranteed a room in residence. Almost half of our students live on campus. Why? Because being in the middle of everything means you'll get the most out of your time here. You'll have 1,500 potential new friends from around the world all within a few minutes' walk. Our residence rooms provide a sage home base to study, get together with your new buddies, or just retreat for some quiet time to recharge your batteries.

One payment covers your rent, furniture, local telephone, Internet, water, electricity, and heat. You'll have access to Acadia's high-speed network, in-house laundry, and the shortest commute to classes, labs, the library, and recreational facilities. Your housing options range from high-rise to heritage and from basic double rooms to single rooms. Each residence has a remarkable team of student resident assistantswho build a sense of community. They also work with security staff to provide 24/7 campus safety.

We offer some of the best dining to be found at any Canadian University. A short walk to our dining hall will find you enjoying an incredible selection of meals prepared by our award-winning chef, who uses fresh produce from our student- run organic farm. There is never a shortage of new things to try or new people to share a meal with.

A recent Globe & Mail Canadian University report gave Acadia University an A- for student residences and an A for campus atmosphere.

Safety & Security on Campus

The Department of Safety and Security at Acadia University strives to maintain a safe, secure and healthy campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors by developing partnerships within the university community to effectively address concerns. We work closely with local law enforcement and community response teams to ensure an environment in which we all feel safe to work, live, learn and play.
