Living in residence


Going away to university can spark an avalanche of change in your life.  It may be the first time you've lived away from home, and this sudden freedom can take some getting used to. Most of our first-year students choose to ease into this new-found independence by living in one of our sixteen residence buildings. Dorm-style living involves sharing a room with a roommate and eating on the on-campus meal plan. Typically, apartment-style living means you have three roommates in an apartment unit, but you all have your own room. Some first-year students choose to live in housing off-campus, which is both abundant and close to the university.
