Living in rez
Living in residence is a great way to fully enjoy life at uOttawa and make new friends from across Canada and around the world. Plus, studies have shown that first-year students who stay in residence tend to adjust better to university and receive more support than students who choose to live off campus. Our 10 on-campus residences provide comfort and convenience, allowing you to focus on your studies. Residence mentors and community advisors are available to provide academic and practical support. If you want, you can join one of our Living Learning Community residences, where like-minded students share your interest in volunteering, social justice and community engagement.
