Housing Choices

Lakehead University Residence is a bustling environment comprised of 1,200 students from all over the world.

Accommodations at Lakehead are divided into three living styles: residence halls, apartments and townhouses. Each style provides a unique environment allowing students to experience freedom while receiving the academic and social support that they need to be successful. All of the residences maintain a sense of community, and strive to provide a safe and healthy atmosphere for all of its members.

Bartley and Prettie are both smoke-free, dormitory-style residence halls. The residence halls are the preferred choices of housing for Secondary School level students who are leaving home for the very first time and coming to University.  With a full meal plan included in the accommodation package, residence hall students can enjoy extra study and activity time while not worrying about meal preparation and cleanup.

North and South apartments are situated between Halliday Hall Residence and Bartley Residence. These apartments house upper-year students with certain units designated as accessible. Optional meal plans are available for your convenience.
