CARES PACKAGE ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS:
May 3 - Dec 31, 2021

As part of the CARES Program, if you’re seeking support with accommodation during self-isolation, we have CARES Packages options available at a subsidized rate. Individual support and check-ins offered through the CARES Program is available for students who need to self-isolate.

If you're coming from outside of Canada, you must register your plans with SFU as early as possible in advance of arrival. If your plans change, please contact cares@sfu.ca. See Traveling to Canada: Self-Isolation Guide for forms and details.

If you would like to register for a CARES Package through the CARES Program, please reserve through the My Place@SFU portal as soon as your travel plans are finalized. To complete your booking we require your date of arrival. Please reserve at least 10 days prior to travel if possible. This program is optional and offered to SFU and FIC students for your convenience in completing the mandated isolation period.   

Individual Support & Check-in Option:

If you’re an SFU student and have made your own self-isolation meal and accommodation plans, we are still here to support you, and you are part of the CARES program too. Learn more

Students in financial need can also apply for financial support through the CARES emergency assistance funding.

Please make sure you register for a CARES package at least 10 days prior to travelling.
