Residence & Housing

Helping you find your home away from home

Are you looking forward to living on campus, meeting new friends and walking to class? Or have you decided to find a place on your own a little closer to town? Either way, we're here to help.

Living in Residence

There’s no better way for you to get connected to university life than by living in one of our three residences located on the Agricultural Campus. Trueman, Fraser and Chapman Houses all offer co-ed living and are conveniently located within a few minutes walk of classes, labs, meal hall, the library, the farm and our athletic centre.

For information on residence options, costs & fees, policies, meal plans and other services visit our Residence website.

Off-Campus Living

Living off campus can be a good option when you have a job in town or simply need a space of your own. Several resources are available to help you with your off-campus home search, from choosing an apartment to signing the lease, and everything in between.

For information about finding an apartment off-campus, including tips, tricks and checklists, visit our Off-Campus Living website
