This Long Distance Visit Weekend is specifically catered towards students living outside of Ontario.

Students Coming from a Distance

There’s nothing like an up-close-and-personal trip to our campus in Hamilton, Ontario to help you determine if Redeemer is the right fit for you. That’s why we’ve put together an awesome weekend visit just for students from far away! Accommodations and meals are free, and there’s even a subsidy for flights and gas!

Parents or chaperones are encouraged to come too! Redeemer will help you find accommodations (on campus or nearby) and will assist with your travel and lodging costs. Certain conditions apply, please contact our events coordinators for more details (

Campus Visit Travel Subsidy

Redeemer offers a subsidy to anyone who travels over 250 km to participate in our campus visit program. To qualify, you need to speak with our events coordinators, preferably before you make your travel plans, in order to ensure everything is in order before you arrive on campus.

 If you’re driving…

The travel reimbursement will be valued up to a maximum of $150 in gas gift cards to assist with your costs. Please contact us for more details.

If you’re flying…

The travel reimbursement will be valued up to a maximum of $400:

  1. $200 will be mailed to you after you have participated in our visit program.
  2. $200 (or the remainder of your airfare, whichever is less) will be mailed to you when you complete your application.*

Please be aware that reimbursements cannot be given for flights paid through any other flight reimbursement plan (i.e. Air Miles, etc.). Please contact the events coordinators before making travel arrangements so that they can best help plan your visit, arrange airport pick-up, and give instructions on how to receive your travel reimbursement for flights.

We will pick-up and drop-off from the Hamilton or Toronto airport between the hours of 6 am-11 pm. Please try to arrive and depart between these times.

*Please note: students are eligible for the Fly-Me subsidy for one visit event to Redeemer. We cannot provide reimbursement for subsequent visits.
