Getting from Here to There
NIC campuses are located in the heart of each community we serve, making it convenient for students to arrive by bicycle, bus, or carpool with classmates.
Plus, secure, affordable housing options are available off campus, throughout the community.
Bus passes are sold at Campus Stores and are available by monthly pass or semester pass. For more information on local bus schedules, fares, and where to buy
tickets off-campus, visit BCTransit
Parking & Carpooling
At NIC, student parking is free! But watch out for signs indicating loading zones, reserved for staff, or parking for those with disabilities, because you'll get a ticket or towed
if you park in the wrong area.
More and more students are taking advantage of carpooling, particularly those travelling between communities. Watch for sign-up posters on campus bulletin boards and inquire
amongst your classmates.
Racks for bicycles are located throughout NIC campuses. Bring a sturdy lock, and don't forget to wear your helmet!
Find a great place to live through our Off-Campus Student Housing Service.
Students can browse apartments and houses for rent, post a personal profile and hunt for roommates. Information is reviewed and posted daily,
so you know your housing information is always up-to-date.
General listings are also available through two local newspapers, The Comox Valley Echo. and the
The Comox Valley Record.
