Residence Isolation Support

INCOMING RESIDENTS

All travellers need a documented plan for quarantine/isolation before travelling. All students travelling to Canada must register their plan with the University Off-Campus Isolation and Travel Registry. Residence is not able to provide on-campus quarantine/isolation accommodation for incoming international students. Do not plan to isolate in residence.

For the latest information on quarantine and isolation requirements upon arriving in Canada, visit the Government of Canada COVID:19: Travel, testing, quarantine and borders webpage and University of Alberta International.

For more information on moving into residence check the Residence Move In webpage.

TRAVEL ISOLATION

Residents who choose to travel outside of Canada during their residence agreement should stay up to date with requirements for return to Canada on the Government of Canada COVID:19: Travel, testing, quarantine and borders webpage.

Even fully vaccinated travellers need a documented quarantine plan before travelling. Residence is unable to provide on-campus quarantine/isolation accommodations for residents who travel. Do not plan to isolate in residence.

Recommended off-campus isolation program

We encourage all incoming residents who need an isolation plan to use the Study Safe Corridor (SSC) TravelSafe program.

After booking your isolation plan with the program, register it with the University Off-Campus Isolation and Travel Registry.

Financial support FOR INCOMING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

If you require financial support to assist with covering additional costs associated with Canada's quarantine requirements, you may be eligible for an International Quarantine Support Grant. To be eligible for the International Quarantine Support Grant, you must register in the Off-Campus Isolation Travel Registry before leaving your home country.
