Living in Residence
Come and meet us in Ottawa with your parents on the weekend of July 21-23 and get a head start on your transition to residence and campus living. Register here.
Get to know your residence and all the resources made available to you: attend your residence “building wide meeting”, scheduled during the move-in weekend.
All year long, hundreds of activities are programmed in residence. Have a glimpse.
Look at the study groups schedule. Courses listed there have the reputation of being very difficult. Sign in and benefit from the experience of a student mentor.
Rez Life Team
The Residence Life Team consists of 64 Community Advisors, 6 Residence Life Coordinators (one leading programming development), a manager and 2 assistants. They help you out in many ways to create a community atmosphere in your building.
When you feel the need to talk privately with someone, go to your CA. Equally trained to help you in case of a personal problem, you can rely on any of them.

Get engaged in the community
“Living in residence is not only having a roof over a head, four walls around you, and a bed to sleep in. The most important part of your journey with us is not related to what building you live in, but the life-changing experiences you’ll go through along the way!” Read more (on getting engaged in the community)
