Winter 2021 Residence FAQ

Live with your peers

Don’t miss out on all the activities, friendships, academic support and networking opportunities that residence has to offer!

Virtual gatherings, outdoor activities, doorway dance parties: students living in residence have found a myriad of ways to stay connected while staying safe. Avoiding close personal contact doesn’t mean any contact at all. You might not high-five, handshake or hug, but you can still say "hello" in the hallway! Connecting with your friends and community is an important protective factor in maintaining wellbeing.

Physical distancing protocols are in place with limits on the number of residents that can gather in common areas.

Residence community supports

Every residence community has highly trained student staff (Residence Assistants) living within the community. Residence Assistants provide individual resident support and community building activities. Professional student affairs staff provide 24-hour on-call support.

For New Students

First-year residents will be assigned to single rooms in the Ravine Residences. The Ravine Residences consist of 6 separate residence halls and one service building. Each residence room has an adjoining bathroom that is shared with another room. Students will be assigned in single rooms and will share their bathroom with one other student. Floor plans and details about the Ravine Residences can be found here.
