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.
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.

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.
Had fantastic service and help throughout the process. Would definitely recommend
I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service
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!
