Built for upper-year (third year or higher) undergraduate students, Aurora Hall will become home to 269 students in two-and three-bedroom suites with private bathrooms and full kitchens.
The building is energy efficient and designed to meet The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, an internationally recognized rating system assessing the environmental sustainability of building designs. Aurora Hall is a nine-storey, plus basement, triangular design situated on the southwest quadrant of the main campus surrounded by beautiful aspen trees adding to the green, lush landscape in the area. Connected to the Dining Centre and the Residence Services office through an underground tunnel system, 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, road hockey tournaments, and more. Mentoring, academic support programming, and leadership opportunities will be available to all students living in Aurora Hall.
