Global Village in International House

Global Village

Global Village is located in International House/Hotel Alma, next to the Dining Centre. Due to the overwhelming number of applications this year, we will be housing first year students that receive a "single room" in this building for the 2019/2020 academic term. We will be creating a first year community on three floors in the Global Village community.

Students that receive a "single room" will be placed in Global Village into two bedroom suites. Each suite has two private lockable bedrooms, a kitchenette, and bathroom. Students that receive a "single room" will be placed into one of the private bedrooms and will have a roommate in the other bedroom. 

The suite kitchenettes include a fridge, sink, and microwave. There is a full kitchen on each floor that residents can use. All first year residents, this includes those living in Global Village are required to purchase either a 5 Day AYCE or 7 Day AYCTE meal plan. This building is connected to the Dining Centre with direct entry into The Landing, providing easy access to the Residence Services office and the underground tunnel system, where students can go virtually anywhere on campus without going outside —perfect for winter!

A wide-range of activities and events are organized for residents, ranging from excursions to the famed Canadian Rockies, to community BBQs, dodgeball tournaments, and more. Mentoring, academic support programming and leadership opportunities will be available to all students.
