Congratulations on getting accepted to Red River College! There are a number of things you should do to ensure a smooth transition to RRC and Manitoba.
Step 2: Read the Red River College International Student Pre-Arrival Handbook.
Step 3: Make your accommodation arrangements. Accommodation arrangements are your responsibility and should be made directly with a service provider. Please see your Winnipeg Accommodation Guide for information on housing options.
