A non resident needs tips

Recommended Posts


I got accepted into the Sept 2020 intake and I am from Alberta. I was hoping to get some insight about what a first year student should do to prepare for the move to Victoria. In terms of housing, packing etc. Any input is appreciated.

It's not much different than moving to any other city. I would suggest you start looking in late May/early June. Transit is not great, so if don't have a car look for a place close to the university. Try to avoid places East of campus, such as Cadboro Bay, because you'll have to walk across campus to get to the Fraser building and it'll be harder to get downtown for events and stuff. I don't have much advice for packing (obviously depends on whether you look for a furnished place or not), but one thing you might want to consider is moving in mid to late August. A lot of stuff happens during the first two orientation weeks, it's an extremely fun but also busy time and you want to be settled in at that point.
