Concordia University spokeswoman Clea Desjardins says the service will be held at a Montreal funeral home.
Lin studied computer science at the university, which is helping raise funds for his family and is setting up an award in his memory.
A public memorial was held last weekend in which his anguished mother talked about how the tragedy had devastated the family.
Lin's dismembered torso was found May 29 stuffed in a suitcase that had been dumped in the trash outside a Montreal apartment building.
The same day, one of his feet was discovered in a package mailed to the Conservative party in Ottawa and a hand was found in another package in a Canada Post warehouse in the national capital.
His other hand and foot were discovered on June 5 in packages mailed to two Vancouver schools.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, a small-time porn actor, was arrested June 4 in Berlin after an international manhunt.
He was extradited to Montreal on June 18 and charged with Lin's first-degree murder the next day.
Magnotta has pleaded not guilty.Suggest a correction
