About the University 🏫


Nipissing University was established in 1992 in North Bay, Canada. Today, the university hosts 5,000 students, 4% of whom are international students. The campus is beautifully located close to Lake Nipssing, which is one of Ontario's most well-known lakes.


The university offers a wide range of programmes and courses, making your chances of finding something for you very likely. Additionally, expect to get into Canadian culture and the authentic experience of student life in Canada.


Nipissing University offers small classes, which means that the focus is on individual students' learning and engagement. It helps to strengthen the unity and community, which will undeniably broaden your network of friends.


Another benefit of the university and its socialization opportunities is the many social clubs offered. There are clubs run by students of many different interests that make it great for students to cultivate a common interest and expand their network.

About the city πŸŒ‡


North Bay in Ontario, has over time been named "The gateway of the north". The quality of life of the approximately 51,000 residents is especially something the city is known for. This is thanks to the city's location between two large lakes, green forests, rivers and even a small waterfall.


Isary Lake, Lake Nipissing is a true attraction in the area. Lake Nipissing is a hotspot for fishermen, but also for people who want to take a dip in the water, as some of the lake's coast is also being used as a beach.


If you're into the idyllic lifestyle with the most beautiful scenery, fishing trips on the boat in great lakes, waterfalls and the opportunity to ski and snowboard, North Bay is the perfect destination for you.


If, on the other hand, you have a deep craving for weekend trips, the metropolis of Toronto is just a 3-hour drive from the North Bay. If you can stretch the drive by half an hour more, you are suddenly in the capital, Ottawa.

Housing Opportunities🏫



Nipissing University offers student accommodations located just a small walk or a 3-minutes bus ride from campus. The student housing apartments houses mainly 4 students, each with their own bedroom. The homes each have two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen equipped with a refrigerator and equipment.


The facilities include Wi-Fi, cable TV, study lounges, gaming rooms, ATMs, 24/7 security and a laundry room in each complex. For an overview of student housing, floor plans, rents, etc. can be found in the brochure here.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
