laval university residencesLaval University (Université Laval) is situated approximately 10 minutes drive south west of downtown Quebec City, in the district of Sainte-Foy. The question of where to stay when you are visiting Laval University, or its PEPS stadium and sports complex, really depends on the overall goals of your trip and whether you wish to combine your visit with a stay closer to the amenities and visitor attractions of the old town.
Staying in one of the downtown hotels would leave you with a 10 minute drive to the university, while staying in old Quebec City would only put you around 15 mins away.

However if you would like a place to stay as close as possible to the university while still having the option of easily visiting Quebec City’s downtown or historic districts, one of the following hotels near Laval University should meet your needs:

Hotel Universel probably has the best location of all Laval University hotels, being just a few steps away from the northern edge of the campus, on Chemin Sainte-Foy. The Universel has several room types to suit all budgets, from economical to deluxe, and boasts an indoor pool, Scandinavian Spa, Boston Pizza restaurant and bar.

Located right on the university campus, the Residences at Université Laval offer student-style accommodations to students and non-students alike, both for short and extended stays. Regular rooms have shared bathroom and shower facilities, while superior rooms offer a private bathroom, fridge, microwave and internet access. All rooms have access to a common kitchen, TV room and laundry facilities.
