What’s it like living in Residence?

“I lived in first-year residence last year. It’s a phenomenal place to live. You share your university life with so many people that it’s easy to find friends you really connect with. Living on campus gives you more time to study and seeing other students studying is a great motivator, even when you’re not in the mood.”

Types of Buildings and Rooms

Live, learn and grow alongside your peers, and create strong and lasting friendships. Housing options transition with you as you progress through your university experience. From shared dorm-style rooms in first year, to full apartments in upper years or grad school, to family housing for families, there are options available for all students.

Multi-year Guarantee

It is nice to know that you are guaranteed a home on campus. All students applying directly from high school (or are under the age of 21) are guaranteed a place in residence for both first and second year. All you have to do is apply by April 30, 2014 and confirm your acceptance by May 31, 2014.
