Living in Residence

As one of our 400 residents, you’ll enjoy convenient access to classes, support networks, services, and campus activities. Residence also provides you with the opportunity to build lasting friendships with English- and French-speaking students from across Canada and around the world.

Residence is guaranteed to first year students for applications received by the deadline. Many students choose to stay in residence in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year as well. Residence fees vary depending on the size of the room.
