Residence Council and Committees
Residence Council consists of a representative from each House and Townhouse, along with the Residence Programmer who acts as the Chair. Council was created under the spirit of Residential Tenancies Act and they advise and assist the University on issues concerning residence life such as Residence policies, rules and student activities. Each member is responsible for one of the committees that you can be involved in. Council also holds residence events such as, Semi-Formals, Airbands, Price is Right and so much more! Residence students are welcome to observe most Residence Council meetings. See your House President if you wish to get involved, and you will have a blast doing it.
Students are both welcome and encouraged to get involved in any of the following committees and groups. Get involved, have fun and meet people!
