Events & Activities

Getting involved on campus

Campus events offer a chance to socialize and meet new people. They also allow you to contribute, and learn about yourself and the communities around you.

Residence Assistants (RAs) and House Councils are always organizing great events tailored to your community’s interests. Make sure to check with your RA for more details throughout the year.

If you have an idea for an event or activity in residence, please contact the Residence Life Don or RA.

Get involved

Most leadership roles in residence are eligible for recognition on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR), an official document from Dalhousie that recognizes your accomplishments and the experiential learning that occurs outside of the classroom.

Each building has a House Council made up of elected students who are responsible for representing their peers, running events and more. There are several positions available on House Council for almost any interest.

If you’re returning to residence for another year, you may consider joining our Residence Life Staff as an RA.
