This Long Distance Visit is specifically catered towards Ontario students with over 250km of travel and for students living in the bordering northern United States (Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, etc.). 

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 will be a shuttle driving through both Windsor and Ottawa areas to bring students to and from campus. For those not on a shuttle route, a travel subsidy is available.

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 (
