Each of the residence buildings have some unique and distinctive aspects about them in terms of size, style, and types of rooms, as well as the placement of students to create specific communities within them. A brief description for each of these buildings can be found in the Student Life section of the website.
Brough House is a 19-room, 3-story home, with a combination of single and double rooms. It includes a full kitchen and laundry amenities, as well as a large common area and a large shared dining room space. Ideal for students who prefer more privacy and smaller numbers for sharing living space. Brough House is a 5-7 minute walk to the main campus buildings.
Southwest is made up of suite-style rooms that include 4 private bedrooms, 2 shared washrooms, a common seating area, and a small kitchenette space (does not include cooking appliances). Southwest is reserved for students with a high admission average and an interest in living in an Academic Learning Community. Students will be selected based upon their interest and entrance average, but placement in Southwest is a random lottery system through the online application program. Suitemate requests cannot be accommodated for Southwest.
Hellmuth Hall contains single rooms. For the 2022-2023 academic year, we may be able to accommodate specific roommate requests for double rooms in Hellmuth only, taking into account provincial health and safety guidelines for Covid-19. Common areas are located on each of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors, with a larger common area located on the ground floor. The Hellmuth residence is attached to one wing of the main campus building and is one of two residences (the other is Southwest) that make up the Academic Learning Community.
O’Neil/Ridley is our largest residence on campus. O’Neil/Ridley is made up of three floors, two wings per floor, and entirely single rooms. Students may wish to live in a “pod”, which is a cluster of single rooms with a shared washroom (between 4-7 students in each pod), accessible only to those students located in the pod area. Shared gender-specific washrooms are located on each floor in each wing, with a number of single gender-neutral washrooms also available for use.
