Off-campus Housing

Living in Wolfville

We love this town! You will too.

Acadia is located in the small town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and most students live within 2 kilometers of campus. Wolfville is a vibrant town, and we encourage you to be part of the community and explore the local area.

There are several communities with rentals located nearby, such as Kentville, New Minas, and Coldbrook. There is limited transit service to these locations. Many students who live outside of Wolfville rely on a car.

When searching for an apartment, consider:

Cost

Rents will vary depending on the apartment's location, age, condition, amenities (ex. private laundry, balcony, storage), and whether utilities are included. If the rent does not include utilities such as electricity and internet, consider what the total monthly cost will be once you add them.

Location

Consider whether the apartment is within convenient walking or biking distance to campus. If not, is there a convenient bus route, or is it a short drive by car? If you have a car, confirm that legal, designated parking is available.

Let's Talk Trash

Be sure to talk to your landlord about waste management. Waste must be sorted into categories: recyclables, compostable, and garbage. Sorting is mandatory, even in apartment buildings.

Garbage not sorted properly will be tagged and left at roadside for you to re-sort for the next garbage collection day.
