Residence Life

Living on campus means there’s always something to do, opportunities to make friends, and ways to give back to the community that will help you build valuable skills for your future. Residence Life staff are among the best-connected people at the university. They’re committed to enhancing the student experience for all residents.

Residence Advisors spend countless hours organizing orientation programs, volunteer opportunities, and fun events like recreational sports, movies, and field trips. They also lend an ear when needed and help address community issues.

Residence Coordinators, usually in their final years of study, live in Totem Park and Place Vanier and help plan large-scale events like the Totem and Vanier Olympics. RCs also coordinate residence networks.

Senior Residence Advisors live in Orchard Commons and the upper-year residence areas. They also plan large-scale events like the Orchard Olympics, residence BBQs and Prof Chats.

Residence Life Managers are professional staff who live and work in each residence area. They help supervise staff, manage student behaviour, and have extensive knowledge of campus resources. RLMs are responsible for ensuring each resident has the opportunity enjoy a positive living experience.
