Benefits of Living on Campus


Enjoy proximity to classes. You'll have easy access to faculty, staff resources and other campus services including the Bookstore, and Health & Wellness. 

Lifelong Friendships

New friendships are at the heart of every residence. Every year, students remark that one of the great things they like about living in residence is meeting new friends.

Leadership Opportunities

Get involved with a Residence Council committee, become a House President or Resident Assistant, and gain valuable leadership skills that will help you build your career!

Better Connections to the Campus

Living in Residence makes the adjustment to university life easier. By living on campus, you will make friends more quickly and become familiar with the campus, and all that it has to offer.

A Diverse Community

Experience a variety of challenges in a comfortable and supportive environment. Living with students from diverse backgrounds enables you to share life experiences, learn about other cultures, celebrate our differences and find new ways of looking at the world.

Academic Support

Programs that directly support your academic efforts. Participate in exam review sessions, study groups, and choose from numerous academic skills workshops that will help you to succeed.


Moving away from home can be hard. That's why Resident Assistants (RA's) are here to help!  RA's help to build a sense of community and to make university residence life the best it can be.  RA's are upper year students, have undergone an interview process, have been fully trained and are here to talk or offer support and guidance.  

Safety and Security

RA's are on call each night and are trained to deal with virtually any situation. Our Residences are locked 24 hours a day and are patrolled by Campus Security.  Campus Security is available 24 hours/day.

Clean Facilities

We are committed to keeping our residence facilities clean and well-maintained. We continue to update and renovate our buildings to ensure that you can enjoy high-quality, well-equipped accommodations.
