Student Life

Welcome to your home away from home

Each fall, Mount Allison University students arrive in Sackville in a wave of energy and enthusiasm.

With extensive outdoor landscapes and an incredibly strong sense of community, Sackville is a great place to be in these unusual times. The Town and Mount Allison have implemented a wide range of health and safety measures across our operations. Our planning continues to be informed by the health and safety guidelines and recommendations of the provincial government and New Brunswick Public Health. We have a variety of Town related information to help you feel at home and stay informed which you can visit here.

Your presence brings youth, vitality, and a cultural diversity that contribute to making Sackville a special place to live. For students, Sackville becomes a home away from home, where lasting friendships and lifetime memories are made.  That could not be more true than during our current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, and that is why we’ve put together a web page to help you navigate Sackville in the new COVID reality.

You’re now part of our community and Sackville is your new home. Being part of a community requires cooperation, patience and understanding. In Sackville, we build community one neighbourhood at a time!

As a newcomer to our community, we invite you to explore Sackville’s many treasures: enjoy a stroll through the 55-acre Waterfowl Park, a night at the movies, a Saturday morning Farmer’s Market, an annual Corn Boil, an evening of blues, and so much more. From top-notch health care at our local hospital to downtown’s charming shops, Sackville has so much to offer.
