NSCC Campus Housing Application

Strait Area Campus

Thank you for your interest in NSCC campus housing. We encourage you to review all campus housing information, including details on our location, services, room types, meal plans and associated costs before completing this application. Included in the application process are personal preference and lifestyle related questions which are used to ensure the best possible suitemate match. Your answers will not exclude you from living in campus housing but rather, serve to support your placement. That is why NSCC Campus Housing strongly encourages the student intending to live in campus housing to fill out all questions personally.

This application is specifically for students who would like to live on campus at:

  • NSCC Strait Area – Port Hawkesbury, NS

Campus Housing admission process
The NSCC Campus Housing admission process considers several factors when offering a space in campus housing and assigning rooms/suitemates. Please review details on the Apply for campus housing page.. NSCC Campus Housing begins offering students a room type/space starting May 1 and will continue extending offers to those on our waitlist on a rolling basis until all available spaces have been confirmed. We accept applications from both new and returning students. In order for new students to submit an application to be considered for campus housing, they must first have confirmed their seat in a program for the 2024/2025 academic year.
