Commuter Residence

Late night lab?  Teaching Evening Class?  Working on Group Project?  Early morning exam?  

Beginning November 1, we have short-term residence accommodation available for commuter students.


If you sometimes need to be on campus late at night or early in the morning, for academic reasons, the Commuter Residence option might be just what you need. You can stay on campus for a maximum of three nights in any one week.


Where is Commuter Residence?Picture of a student sleeping with headphones on, in front of a laptop computer.
Commuter residence is offered in Lennox-Addington (L/A) Hall on the north end of campus.   You can stay in either a single room, or a group with up to four people (if you all request each other). L/A rooms are traditional-style residence rooms with twin beds, wardrobe, desk, chair and lamp. Washroom facilities are shared. L/A features a dining hall and 24 hour service desk.  


What is the cost and what does it include?
The flat rate per night is $39.00. This rate includes accommodation, linens and ResNet WiFi access.  HST is included in the rate.   Payment for your accommodation should be made at the Student Housing office located in Maritime Hall.


Can I use commuter residence to hang out with friends?
Commuter residence is intended for students to stay on campus to support academic success and safety - such as staying late night to access the library, labs, or to work on group projects. Commuter residence students cannot sign in guests. A complete guide to Commuter Residence Community Standards can be found on the menu to the right, or here.
