Accommodation for self-isolation

It is very important that you have access to a safe and clean place to stay during your self-isolation period. If you do not have pre-arranged accommodation for isolation, the following list provides accommodation options located in Vancouver. These locations offer self-isolation arrangements for students arriving from outside Canada in October 2020. 


When arranging your accommodation you must arrange your transportation from the airport to your Self Isolation destination.

You must travel straight to your Vancouver home from the airport by personal car, taxi, or ridesharing. Remember to wear a mask inside the vehicle.

Here there are some options to check:
