Having a Buddy

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

The Bureau de la vie étudiante will match you with your buddy when you arrive in Quebec City, or from mid-August if you are studying remotely. 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.

As far as possible, students will be matched in accordance with the preferences they provide on their registration form.
