Graduate Residence

Students in Graduate Residence are focused, mature and appreciate being a part of a neighbourhood. They like independence, but also the convenience of a furnished suite close to campus!

Residents take advantage of tailored support for their studies including an on-site faculty member and thesis defense preparation sessions. They care about their neighbours and work together to nurture a community spirit.

Graduate Residence consists of four beautiful buildings: Rockcress, Stonecrop, Juniper and Speedwell.
