General Information

Below you will find some helpful information that will help make your PEI and UPEI experience more enjoyable.

What to bring with you

While living in residence students will be provided with a bed, desk, lamp, mirror, sheets, pillowcase, and blankets. Please be advised that the dress code for class is informal. We recommend that students bring the following items with them to PEI:

  • Casual clothes for daily wear
  • Sweatshirts and/or sweaters
  • Warm jacket
  • Rain jacket
  • Running shoes
  • Towels and face cloths
  • Laundry soap (laundry services available in residence)
  • Personal hygiene items (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush...)
  • Swimsuit and a beach towel
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen
  • Prescription medication (if needed)
  • ATM card
  • Government-issued identification with your current picture and birth date
  • French-English dictionary (or of your first language)
  • Provincial Health Card*

*However, medical insurance from Quebec may not cover the total cost of a hospital visit and therefore some students choose to purchase an additional insurance to cover the difference in price.
