University of Windsor: Arriving in Canada

By University of Windsor Modified on September 15, 2017

To make your arrival to Canada as smooth as possible, check out the Soft-Landing Program!


The University of Windsor has one of the most internationalized student bodies in Canada. Through our International Student Centre (ISC) we are committed to facilitating your well-being to make UWindsor feel like your home away from home! The ISC guides and supports students starting before arrival on campus - right up to graduation.

The Soft-Landing Program for new international students follows a series of 4 steps to ensure your arrival in Canada is as simple as possible. The process starts with determining how you will arrive in Windsor through to ensuring you find accommodation for your stay. If you apply for this program we will pay for you to stay at a nearby hotel for your first night in Windsor. Make sure you stop by and visit the International Student Centre as soon as you arrive to take advantage of the student assistants waiting to welcome you and provide you with a welcome package and answer the many questions you may have.

During the first few days you are in Canada, the International Student Centre will guide you through Student Orientation. Over a three-day period, new students will receive valuable information to help them succeed in their new program. University's administration, faculty and volunteer students provide a warm welcome with information, prizes, games and the best chance to make new friends.
