We want to make your transition as easy as possible and make every effort to greet new incoming students either at the airport or on campus.
Please make sure to purchase your ticket in advance. Once you have, give us an idea of when to expect you.
From August 29th to September 1st, we will have a welcome centre at the Deer Lake Regional Airport (YDF). For most flights during that time period, we are planning to have current students available to greet you and provide information and assistance on how to get to campus.
When you land at the Deer Lake Regional Airport, a representative of Grenfell Campus should be there to meet you if you come between August 29th and September 1st. If you arrive at a different time or we are unable to greet you, you can proceed to take the Star Taxi shuttle service. Ask to be dropped off at Grenfell Campus at the main entrance by the flag poles.
Enter the main building. If you don't see anyone, head to your left. You will find a Campus Enforcement and Patrol Officer in an information booth. They will call someone to come assist you. If you have any urgent issues during your trip that requires immediate attention, you can call them at +1 709 637-6210 and they will be able to connect you with someone that can offer assistance. This service is free and available 24 hours per day.
There will be a mandatory orientation day for all new international students on September 1st, so you want to plan to arrive before that if you can. Most flights coming to Deer Lake are scheduled in the middle of the night and we plan for that on our end. There are additional fees if you live on campus and move in before Housing officially opens on Sept 1st. All students that want to check in before September 1st must make arrangements with Conference Services before August 1st. You have to contact Marie-Claude Renaud directly to get the special student fee. These fees vary depending on which building you live, but they are less than $20 per day. Please note that there will be limited services available before September 1st.
