Where to live?

Recommended Posts

The two that I know have apartments close to the campus. Fredericton is full of apartments around September! If you are looking for roommates, I would post an ad saying you will be a first year law student. That way you can find other people in similar circumstances.

I plan on getting an apartment in town with my boyfriend since he is in Fredericton as well.

It will depend if you have a vehicle or not! Lots of law students live in EPJ which is nice for the convenience sake. I have a vehicle and live downtown not too far from the farmers market which is a wonderful, central location but the hill can be a pain to walk up. 

Several students live in the forest hill / Dunn’s crossing apartments as well.

Could anyone who has lived/lives in EPJ share photos of what the suites look like? I'm from out of province and I'm leaning toward living in residence for convenience sake in first year, but cannot find anything on what the suites look like online

That would be awesome

I'll be a first year with you, and I'm also looking for apartments in Fredericton. Might even take a trip down to tour campus and look at some places. A friend of mine who's an alum said there's some apartment buildings within like 5-10 min walk of the hall that are relatively nice and rather affordable.

Perhaps Regency Park?

Possibly? I'm not 100% sure, but I plan on taking a serious look this week.

These are the photos UNB uses to advertise EPJ residence rooms for their summer hotel.

Does anyone have any info on the former STU residence building (Chatham Hall) on the Forest Hill campus, which is now owned by a rental company? I have seen ads for their all-inclusive furnished rooms with private baths, but otherwise can’t seem to find much about this place in the way of recommendations. Thanks!

    • Yes. There is a 'tryout' process, or at least there was (new) last year, but it is very easy. We had to read a journal article, answer some questions about it, and perform some citations work pursuant to the McGill Guide (legal citation guide) within a couple of days. It actually takes longer than you might think, but not long. Around 45 people made it on to law review, they wouldn't tell us how many 'tried out'. 
    • So you’re saying you didn’t work your ass off to get into university, maintain a high GPA, pass the LSAT, get into law school, maintain good grades in law school, kill articling interviews, work yourself to the grindstone during articling, pass the bar, and now you’re where you are? this whole “white privilege” discussion is total bullshit and nonsense. I don’t understand the guilt people have for being successful. And you shouldn’t be guilty for your parents having worked that hard to provide a good life for you as I’m sure you will for your kids. 
    • Maybe in some positions, but definitely not in others, including mine.  Unless I have court, I schedule whatever I want and do whatever I please. As long as the hours are there, no one cares. 
    • Work. I love having a schedule that I cannot miss for any reason and getting paid to adhere to it and work on practical, real-life matters. I love having that sense of direction too, as well as just knowing that no matter how small the task I'm working on is, it is still meaningful. I learn a lot more too and retain it far better. I want to wake up in the morning and get started on my day, whereas when I'm in school I constantly yearn for the weekend. I feel a lot more anxiety in school... I get a bit of anxiety at work too, but I think the stability and meaningfulness make it a lot easier to deal with. Getting paid and not having to worry about how I am going to pay the bills is also an added bonus, but I would probably prefer school if it was structurally more similar to a work environment and things were taught in a more hands-on, practical matter.
    • We did actually get an email from the Parkdale intensive back in March, i.e. after the clinic recruit, informing students that they still had unfilled spots so I actually got the sense that it wasn't a very popular clinic, for whatever reason.
