Residence Services

Room Closures

There has been a significant water leak in the SJC women’s residence from a sprinkler head in one of the rooms, leaking to the floors below.

We are happy to announce that the majority of the displaced residents have returned to their rooms and we are endeavouring to restore the remaining rooms as quickly as possible.

If you need mental health support, please access the support services offered through SJC Campus Ministry by emailing 

  • Collecting Necessities from Your Room

    For those that have been temporary re-located to Nipisiy House that need to access any of their belonging from the storage in SJC, please email to make arrangements to be escorted to the room. 

  • Returning to Rooms

    Residents may return to their room once they have confirmation from SJC. 

  • Food Options

    We encourage you to get food and have arranged for two options:

    1) Peter Lougheed ~ Residents who have been temporarily re-located to Nipisiy House have access to all meals at Peter Lougheed. 

    2) SJC Dining Hall ~ Residents who have been temporarily re-located to Nipisiy House have access to lunch and supper at the SJC Dining Hall. 

    Please choose one of these options. 

  • Laundry

    All laundry facilities are now available for use. Laundry facilities on the 1st and 3rd floor are available 24/7. However, due to restoration, the 5th floor facility is currently only available from 8:00 am - 10:00 pm daily.

    Note that at times restoration work may be going on in 1st, 3rd and 5th floors. 

  • Deferred Exams & Assignments

    We have already informed the Dean of Students at the UofA regarding this situation and they are prepared and ready to work with your faculty when the time comes.

    If you need your exams and/or assignments deferred, please speak first to your instructor(s). If you are not able to work out a satisfactory arrangement, contact Andre Costopoulos <> and Sarah Wolgemuth <> in the Dean of Students office at the UofA, and they will work with your Faculty to arrange any needed deferments.  

  • Restoration

    We apologize for any noise associated with restoration.


  • Message to Parents
    For any of your parents that are concerned, we ask that you keep them updated and let them know that you are safe. Please direct them to the College website for updated information. Please let them know you are safe and taken care of with access to food through full meals, and we will be providing accommodations for all those impacted, as well as travel to accommodations on campus. We have also covered off your deferrals with your faculties.
