What is the best thing about being an NC international student?

The labs are open early and remain open late, so students can do work in the computer labs after classes. Each lab is equipped with pay for use printers. All computers have high-speed internet access and are free to use.
Niagara College recognizes and appreciates that many students require a private space to practice their faith. For this reason, we have space allocated for students who wish to worship and reflect and for student faith based groups to congregate, including a multi-faith room and Wudu washing area.
Location of Faith Rooms:
Welland – S157
Niagara-on-the-Lake – beside the gym entrance (Lower Ground Floor, West Wing)
Location of Wudu Washing Areas:
Welland – Women’s S154, Men’s S155
There are several large banks in Canada and most have branches throughout Niagara. Students are encouraged to open a bank account as soon as they arrive. It does not cost anything to open a bank account and all that is needed is your passport. The best bank is the one that is most convenient to you.
