August 31st is Move-in Day for new students!

With this simple guide, you'll know exactly what to expect, how to get here, where to go, and what to do on your first day at Mount Allison.

What time should I plan to arrive at Mount Allison?
If you are living on-campus, it is advised that you arrive and move into your residence between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, August 31. If you anticipate arriving after 2 p.m., please contact your residence don at [residence]don@mta.ca (e.g. windsordon@mta.ca). Orientation events begin at 2 p.m. Student ambassadors will take you to the meeting point. The University Commencement ceremony begins at 4 p.m. at Convocation Hall.

Where do I go once I get to campus?
If you are living on-campus, go directly to your assigned residence where you can register and move in. Residences open at 9 a.m. Afterwards, go to the Wallace McCain Student Centre where you can pick up your Welcome Pack, your MtA ID Card, and your mailbox key. If you are living off-campus, proceed directly to the Student Centre.
