To get your Université Laval experience off on the right foot, we recommend arriving a minimum of 5 to 7 days before the semester starts. The Winter 2020 semester will kick off on January 13th, the first day of classes and internships. Play it smart and get here early! Arriving during the week that precedes the start of the semester should give you enough time to complete the administrative formalities required prior to registration, so you can be ready when classes start. If you need to find a place to live when you arrive in Québec City, we suggest you allow 3 to 5 additional days for your search.
If you want to get here a bit earlier to explore Quebec City area, note that our welcoming services and activities will start on January 6th.
