Campus Life

Join Our Community

We’ve Been Waiting for Someone Like You

We believe that each student brings something unique to our community. Whether you have a broad range of life experiences, a great personality, or a special talent, there’s a place for you at Saint Mary’s.

And there’s plenty of opportunity to get involved. Enjoy volunteering. Help out with Shinerama or join the Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Squad. Like athletics? Try out for one of our varsity teams or play for fun. Want to find common ground? Join a club or society.

Proud of Our Diversity

As a Saint Mary’s student, you’ll be part of a diverse, multicultural community. In fact, our international students make up almost a quarter of our population, with more than 90 different countries represented on campus.

You’ll build strong international connections while expanding your cultural horizons. If you’re an international student, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to connect with other people in your community when you explore our culture-based societies and clubs. You’ll also find lots of support close at hand in our International Centre.

A Fun City, Full of History

Our warm, welcoming community extends beyond the borders of our campus into the greater city of Halifax. A vibrant port city best known for its maritime charm and friendly residents, Halifax has all the conveniences and culture of a larger city and the close-knit relationships of a town. Whether you spend time exploring the waterfront, visiting art galleries, or enjoying our diverse music scene, you’re sure to find the perfect way to fill your spare time.
