What you need to know…

So you’ve registered, chosen your stream, cleared your calendar, and now it’s almost time to head out the door. Here’s a checklist of last-minute information.

Staying onsite

Rooms are available in the Mount’s Westwood residence at a special rate of $44.07/night, including taxes and breakfast. The rate applies to a single dorm room with shared baths or an apartment share. Westwood has mostly four-bedroom fully furnished apartments complete with living room, kitchen, and two bathrooms.

Book your room by sending an email directly to the Mount (reservations@msvu.ca) or by filling out the online form on this page. Be sure to let them know you are with How We THRIVE.

Getting there

We will meet at Mount Saint Vincent University (166 Bedford Highway) just outside Halifax, in the Rosaria Student Centre and the new McCain Centre. Download the campus map.

Check out the self-organizing ride share board if you are interested in sharing a ride.
