facebook Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) - Northern College Residence


What are the benefits of living on campus?

Living in residence on campus provides a safe and secure environment to study, meet friends and be supported through your academic and personal college experience. With building code and key access with Resident Advisors trained in emergency response and First Aid, we aim to ensure that all students feel secure in their home.

Our residence life team will continue to host events and opportunities every few weeks for students to virtually meet one another and build the sense of community we strive to achieve every year.

Additionally, residence is a convenient option for students who may not have previously considered living on campus prior to COVID-19. For those with in person components to their program, living on campus is a great way to eliminate or reduce your daily commute.
