Join us on Sunday October 22, 2023 for the annual StFX Open House


The StFX Open House is your opportunity to discover what it's like to live and learn on Canada's most beautiful campus. There's no better way to imagine yourself as a future student than to experience StFX in person.

Student walking outside towards the steps located on the side of Mulroney Hall. It is a cloudy day, but the grass and trees are green.

We have an interactive, fun-filled day planned for you and your parents/supporters where you will: 

  • Learn about academic programs, student services, and residence options
  • Attend faculty presentations
  • Explore campus and take a guided tour of residences, classrooms, and student spaces. All 1st year students are guaranteed a room in residence!
  • Enjoy a delicious free brunch at Morrison Hall, our primary dining facility. Brunch is available throughout the morning with reservation times on the hour from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. Reservation times will be on the registration form.
  • Apply to StFX on the spot or in advance of coming and skip the application fee! Simply use promo code GoXGo2024 during the application process and the fee is waived.
