Living in rez
There is so much to discover beyond the classroom at uOttawa. Many first-year students live in residence because it’s the perfect way to get acquainted with everything the University offers. There’s always something happening, from Welcome Week and free yoga to benefit concerts and holiday markets. You’ll hear lots of different languages spoken on campus and uOttawa’s culturally rich and open environment will help you meet new friends from across Canada and around the world.
Keep active at our gyms, fitness classes, pool and skating rinks, and check out the Healthy Lifestyles program, an approach to maintaining a healthy weight led by a registered dietitian and a certified fitness trainer. And don’t worry, everyone eats well on campus. With 23 options, including a 24/7 dining hall, food courts, food trucks and cafés, you’ll always find fresh and tasty food, with options for those with certain dietary restrictions.
