Several universities in Nova Scotia are keeping at least one of their student residences open for international students as residences across the province close in the face of rising COVID-19 case numbers. Dalhousie University, which has closed its residences until the end of January, made an exception for international students who needed to come back earlier. Acadia University has kept residences open for its large number of international students in an effort to limit disruption to their studies. “Over 50 per cent of our students who are out of province are international, so we wanted to make sure that their travel plans would not be disrupted,” said Acadia President Peter Ricketts.
