Having a Buddy

The pairing may be done in person or at distance depending on the participant preferences.  If you do opt for a meeting in person, you must respect the government health recommendations. Since the situation is constantly evolving, we invite you to consult the COVID-19 page of Laval University to stay up to date.

You can apply to have a buddy if:
  • You are starting studies at Université Laval, even remotely
  • You would like your arrival, settling in, and integration into your new living and study environment to be as easy and pleasant as possible
  • You have questions about how things work in Québec
  • You would like to have an Université Laval student contact who is familiar with campus and Québec City life

As a participant in the Student Buddy Program, you will be matched with an Université Laval student who will be available a few hours a week for the first weeks of the semester to help you settle in and get to know Québec City and the campus.

The program is run by the Bureau de la vie étudiante. As far as possible, students will be matched in accordance with the preferences they provide on their registration form.

The registrations for the Winter semester are now closed.

For the Fall semester 2020, you must register before September 20th. The pairing will start on August 17th.
