MtA Sackville Bubble 

The MtA Sackville Bubble existed before 'bubbles' became part of our vocabulary.

Students have long referred to their time at Mount Allison as living in the 'Sackville Bubble'. The bubble has always represented a space where students and the entire community can feel a shared connection — enveloped by the belief that we are all in this together.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire community worked to make a commitment to protect everyone in the MtA Sackville Bubble.


Sackville Community Partnerships

The Sackville Community Partnerships group has worked to develop and enhance relationships between the University, town and community with respect to off-campus housing.

The group has addressed issues of common concern, including neighbourhood quality of life, landlord/tenant relations, health and safety, and communications.

The group consisted of: Town of Sackville, Mount Allison University, Sackville RCMP, Sackville Fire and Rescue, Mount Allison Students’ Union, and community members.
