Do I have to live on campus?

Full time Crandall students have the option to live on campus (based on availability) or off campus. If you choose to live off campus, you will be required to find suitable lodgings on your own. Crandall is conveniently located in the North end of Moncton, NB and is accessible through public transit.

I do not consider myself a Christian – can I attend?

Can I bring alcohol onto campus?

No, Crandall is considered a “dry” campus which means that alcohol and recreational drugs are not permitted in the school or in on-campus housing. Crandall is also smoke-free, which means that smoking, tobacco, and cannabis use is not permitted anywhere on campus.
