Arrival date


Due to the pandemic, you may not be allowed to travel to Canada. Please, visit our page on this subject for more details.

To get your Université Laval experience off on the right foot, we recommend arriving a minimum of 5 to 7 days before the semester starts. Arriving during the week that precedes the start of the semester should give you enough time to complete the administrative formalities required prior to registration, so you can be ready when classes start.

If you need to find a place to live when you arrive in Québec City, we suggest you allow 3 to 5 additional days for your search.

The Bureau de la vie étudiante offers orientation activities before the semester starts, but also throughout the year to help you familiarize with Québec City.
