Safe Arrivals Program (International)

Arriving in a new country, especially after a long flight, can be overwhelming. To help make your transition to Thunder Bay as stress-free as possible, we offer a Safe Arrivals program. Safe Arrivals offers three options for you to choose from, letting us take care of the details of your short-term accommodation upon arrival and/or transportation from the airport.

Safe arrivals application, please complete and submit to our office.

If you chose not to participate in the Safe Arrivals program, we conclude that you will be arranging your own accommodations and transportation from the airport.

  • Students can now stay in the Sibley Hall residence upon arrival for up to three nights (shared accommodation) for $75. The fee for all three nights is $75 - not $75 per night.  Students’ may extend their short-term stay, at their own expense, subject to room availability.
