title-housing

NSCAD University does not maintain a residence, and students are therefore responsible for making their own accommodation arrangements in the Halifax/Dartmouth area. An arrangement with Saint Mary’s University gives equal priority to NSCAD students for residence spaces at SMU (see below for more details). Many students rent furnished rooms from private owners or share an apartment, flat or house with other students. As new students get to know other students at the university, opportunities for less expensive shared rentals begin to occur.
