Explore Our Residences

In our two on-campus residences — Wood and Hilliard — you’ll find housing options to accommodate your needs. You’ll find an even mix of first- and upper-year students in residence, as well as the opportunity to build lasting friendships with English- and French-speaking students from across Canada and around the world.

We recently invested more than $10 million in residence improvements, including new furniture and better accessibility. Check them out here!

In these four-storey traditional-style residences, you’ll get:

  • Semi-private suites, with 90% of accommodations designated as single rooms
  • Self-contained community bathrooms with private toilet and shower rooms, and shared sink spaces
  • Conversation areas, and study and community spaces
  • Full accessibility to all student spaces (Hilliard) or partial accessibility (Wood)
  • High-speed Internet access, plus a LAN that gives you access to software from our computer labs right in your room
  • All-gender floors, as well as a female-only wing
  • Residence meal plan, which runs on a debit card system in the Glendon Dining Hall, as well as on the Keele campus
  • A live and learn community, called Maison francophone

Your Support Team

Meet the Res Life Team! First, there are Dons, who are senior student staff members who work to create a respectful community environment, answer your questions, ensure your health and safety, and promote awareness of diversity. They are empowered to help you with academic concerns, stress management and roommate conflict, and are trained in first aid and CPR. You also have access to your Residence Life Coordinator, who is a full-time University staff member living in residence, dedicated to facilitating the day-to-day management of residence.
