Each Western residence has:

Guaranteed accommodation

If you are a single high school student without children, and receive an offer of full-time, first-year admission by mid-May, Western will hold a place for you in residence provided you respond to our residence offer by submitting your required residence pre-payment by the assigned due date.

A flexible meal plan on - and off - campus

Vegetarian? Food allergy? Western offers a selection of menu choices that will satisfy every dietary need or restriction.

Finding the right roommate

Western’s roommate-matching system helps ensure that you and your roommate are compatible on various lifestyle preferences. If you have a friend coming to Western, let us know and we’ll be sure to place you together.

Learning community and faculty floors

Break the ice by connecting with people who share your interests. Whether your passion is fitness, leadership, volunteer work, cultural awareness or diversity, we have a learning community floor that will suit your lifestyle. Or, live with students from your own academic program on our faculty-based floors.

RezNet - Residence Internet Access

Western's residence network system, RezNet, provides fast, on-demand access to the Western campus network and the Internet.

Safety first

Front desk staff are available in most residences during the day, and are accessible by telephone 24/7. Student staff members live on each floor and a professional manager lives in each residence to help respond to any situation.

Staff support

Need help with your studies, or information on campus resources? Looking for someone to talk to? Your residence staff member is here for you, just down the hall.

Academic support

Worried about the pressures of academic life? Western residences offer many resources to help, including workshops on how to write multiple choice exams, essay writing tips, study groups, faculty learning communities and get-to-class breakfast clubs.
