The St. George campus offers residence at each of the seven colleges, Chestnut Residence, Graduate House, or Student Family Housing. The more contemporary colleges feature updated residences, while the oldest colleges have more history. Each residence has its own intramural teams, events, governance, clubs and dining options. Each residence also has its own eligibility rules – some are open to all students, and others are open only to those studying in a certain academic program.
There is a residence option to suit any need, including accessibility. Check out each residence for details.
If you are considering residence and you are able to visit campus, we highly recommend taking tours of the residences you are interested in – there is no better way to see if you like the accommodation style and living environment.
Campus Tours are offered daily at the Nona MacDonald Visitor's Centre.
- Schedule: Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and Saturdays at 11 a.m.. Tours are not held on statutory holidays and long weekends.
