Yamnuska Hall houses first and second year residents.
Yamnuska Hall is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building. The building uses a third less energy than a conventional residence building. Heat is captured from outgoing exhaust air to warm incoming fresh air using heat recovery wheels. Every year the water efficient fixtures in the building help save enough water to fill six Olympic-size swimming pools. Indoor air quality was optimized through the selection of low-emitting materials. Living on campus with easy access to on-site secure bike storage and transit routes provides a great opportunity to reduce transportation emissions
First-year residents living in Yamnuska Hall are required to purchase either a 5-day or 7-day AYCTE Meal Plan. Second-year or higher residents living in the building are not required to purchase a meal plan, but may purchase an AYCTE Meal Plan or swipe plan if they wish.
