Schedule of Events

Spring Orientation (Details will be sent to students' emails)

Monday, January 20,2020

We can assist you with transportation from the Buffalo/Niagara Airport. Please email us at international@niagara.edu to make arrangements. If your Visa allows and you choose to fly into Canada, you will arrive at the Toronto Pearson International Airport.  Toronto Pearson International Airport is about 1 ½ hours from campus (depending on traffic and bridge backups). A shuttle from Toronto Pearson Airport is your responsibility and can be arranged upon your arrival at the airport by visiting the shuttle kiosk located in the airport.

In anticipation of your arrival to campus, you are encouraged to “Like” Niagara University International Relations/Brennan Center on Facebook. You are also encouraged to join the Niagara University International Students Facebook group. It is a great place to meet peer mentors and other new international students as well as to ask questions about your upcoming NU college experience.
