Housing Update

To the Cape Breton Community, 

You may have noticed an increase in incoming CBU students searching for accommodations in the local community. We are aware that some students are still looking to secure accommodations for the Fall semester, beginning in less than two weeks. At this time, we have a limited number of double dorm rooms available in Residence. We understand this may not be the first choice for some; however, due to the time-sensitive nature of their search, we are strongly encouraging students without housing to reconsider this option while the rooms are still available. Residence has always been our number one recommendation for incoming students, as it is a safe, secure and convenient location. 

Throughout the year, our Off-Campus Housing Coordinator, Kelsey Johnston, has worked diligently to advertise to local renters and maintain the off-campus housing search page. Renters can advertise their openings on this page at no cost. If you are interested in renting to incoming students, we encourage you to get in touch with Kelsey directly. 

By opening your home or rental property to a CBU student, you are helping us to remain a vibrant, growing community with a bright future. We appreciate all the community has done to make our students feel welcome, and look forward to continued collaboration in the months and years ahead.
