Things to Do in Halifax

Steeped in history, folklore, arts, and music, the city map is dotted with museums, galleries, and will most certainly have live music floating through the air! Enjoy live performances at the Music Room, Neptune Theatre, and the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. Shakespeare by the Sea theatre company also performs outdoors at Point Pleasant Park.

The Halifax Harbourwalk is a 3km boardwalk running along the waterfront, a popular place to visit for locals and tourists, lined with local boutiques, and brought to life by lively buskers. Public Squares also dot the cityscape, home to festivals, and events, including the International Busker Festival which takes place in August each year. Summer brings in festival after festival as the city fills with visitors looking to escape the fast-paced city life and enjoy the fresh, maritime air.

Many students choose to live in off-campus student housing or student residence because of the freedom and experience it provides, entrenched in the culture and community your new city has to offer. Being able to come and go as you please and prepare your own meals is a big plus, made that much easier and enjoyable when student rentals have onsite amenities designed to make everyday life comfortable and convenient.
