You may be wondering, "Just what is Residence Life?"  We hope that the information contained within this website will illustrate why Residence Life is a critical component to your on-campus experience. We here on the Residence Life team are extremely proud of the work we do to create fulfilling and holistic experiences and we are excited to share it with you.  

In addition to our highly recognized restorative approach, evidence-based learning communities and curriculum; and innovative programs and service, we are extremely proud of our commitment to student success and support.  Our incredible team of Residence Life Staff work year-round to ensure our efforts and resources are contributing to your experience and our overall goals of developing a sense of belonging, cultivating resiliency and supporting academic success.  

Residence Life is more than events, community management and outside of the classroom education (although we do this incredibly well!); it's the catalyst for life time friendships, an agent for personal evolution and the supportive safety net for new found independence...and fun.  Residence Life is full of fun and enthusiasm, and that's just how we like it!  

I hope you will take a few minutes to explore this website and find out more about Residence Life at the University of Guelph and the many amazing programs and services we offer.
