Living at Brock Commons

Brock Commons is one of our newest residence areas. It is currently home to over 700 students. This number will increase to over 1,000 students when the south building opens. Residents enjoy its central location, spectacular views and unique building features. The AMS Nest, bus loop, and many campus classrooms and recreational facilities are nearby. Brock Commons is also where you will find Tallwood House—one of the tallest mass timber hybrid buildings in the world—which opened in July 2017.
