Confederation College’s residences offer everything students need to make their College experience a memorable and safe time, while enjoying the convenience of being just steps away from class. With a number of different room options, tons of amenities and weekly social events, students can look forward to a comfortable home away from home.

The Spruce and Cedar Residence offers fully furnished units, laundry facilities and a fully equipped common kitchen. Complete with a three bedroom apartment style living,  this residence option also provides students in an in-suite kitchen, bathroom, and laundry facilities.

Sibley Hall Residence is home to 229 students every year. The residence has recently been renovated and is a safe, community-oriented residence with five room style options. Prices vary based on the type of room. Each room includes a single bed, wardrobe, small fridge and microwave and some have private en-suite baths. All students staying in residence must also purchase a meal plan: this is not optional

Important: Residence fills up quickly and students need to apply well in advance of their arrival in order to ensure a room. Residence is not typically available for the January intake. Students MUST commit to staying in Residence for the full academic year. Once school is over, students must vacate their room or speak directly with officials at Residence regarding prolonging their stay during the vacation period.

Off Campus Accommodations

Thunder Bay has a variety of off-campus rental housing options including single homes, duplexes and apartments. Students wishing to live off-campus need to research availability on their own and should arrive well before the start of term to do so.  International Education Centre is unable to arrange off-campus housing for interested students. Students can also connect with other international students looking for off-campus accommodation, by posting a note on our Facebook page

Students can also consult the following for off-campus housing listings:  ; Home Sweet Home; Thunder Bay Kijiji ;The Chronicle Journal

 Please confirm with the landlord what utilities are included in the rent and which need to be arranged and paid for separately.

Also note, that most rental accommodation in Thunder Bay is rented unfurnished. This means that you may have to budget and arrange for the purchase and delivery of furniture.

Finally, most landlords require first and last month’s rent in advance of you moving in. Please budget for that. Rent is generally paid the first of each month.


International students are carefully paired with Canadian host families. Together with their hosts, our students enjoy various cultural, social and recreational activities and experience a true Canadian lifestyle. Host families might be single people, young couples with children and pets, or older couples. The families enjoy spending time with international students and can help with language learning and culture shock. Homestay houses are usually just a short bus ride away from the college. 


The Awards, Bursary, and Scholarship Program provide financial assistance to students in need, while recognizing others for their academic accomplishments or extracurricular involvement.
