COVID-19 has changed lots of things. But our commitment to an incredible university experience is the same.

Are you a student who's academically focused and socially engaged? Then we're the university for you. 

Discover StFX and explore our academic programs... from the comfort of your own computer! We want you to get to know all we have to offer, from incredible faculty to amazing student leadership opportunities. Plus, we have a feeling of community and belonging you just won’t find anywhere else.

StFX is the way university is meant to be. 

While we'd love to be able to welcome you to our campus for an in-person open house, this virtual event will be the next best thing. If you're thinking about studying at StFX, you won't want to miss it!


What should I expect?

We have a number of virtual events planned throughout the day, including:

  • A welcome session with our President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Andy Hakin.
  • Faculty information sessions in our three core undergraduate faculties (Arts, Business, and Science) plus a fourth session specifically for students who want to study Nursing.
  • Drop-in “chat” sessions with all of our individual academic departments.
  • Virtual campus tours, narrated by our fabulous team of tour guides (all of whom are current students!)

Check the full schedule for more information.

How will a ‘virtual’ open house work?

Our faculty sessions, departmental drop-ins, and campus tours will all be interactive. You can ask questions and interact with us via the chat function.  Although we know nothing compares to an in-person experience, we are working hard to deliver a virtual event that will give you a taste of all the wonderful things you can look forward to on campus!


What technologies will be used?

The open house will use both Zoom and Blackboard Collaborate. You do not need to download Blackboard Collaborate, but you will need to download and install Zoom is you don’t already have it on your computer. You can download Zoom here.


Do I need to pre-register?

Yes. Please pre-register so we can send you the links required to attend.
