Welcome to Western

Housing and Residence

Make Western your home away from home

We offer nine residences with three different room styles: traditional-style with single or double rooms with shared common washrooms on each floor; suitestyle with single rooms, shared cooking facilities, semi-private washrooms, and a common living area; and hybrid-style with mostly double-room units which have their own washroom.

Why RezLife?

The Academic Edge
Studies have shown that students who live in residence do better academically than their off-campus peers. Our Living Learning Communities are made up of like-minded students to create  fluidity between the academic and home environments. An Academic and Leadership Programmer works in each residence to provide coaching, academic resources, and academic programming. You can achieve higher grades with exam review sessions, academic cafés, and study skill workshops – all right where you live!

Getting Involved and Growing Your Skills
Expand your personal and professional skills through involvement in numerous academic, social, cultural, and recreational activities just steps away from your front door! By getting involved in your Residents’ Council or becoming a Residence Staff member or Residence Soph, you can gain valuable leadership skills to help you land your dream job when you graduate.

Healthy Dining
Our flexible meal plan gives you easy access to residence dining halls and campus eateries plus many off-campus meal plan partners. Our chefs prepare a wide selection of food in-house, so there’s always something new to try. Allergies? Dietary restrictions? No problem. Nutritional content is available online for our menu items. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten- and nut-free options are offered daily.

Focus on Safety
Safety is important to us. In residence, our front doors are locked 24/7. Our front desk staff are just a phone call away, and residence student staff live on each floor and are on-call during evenings and weekends.

Seamless Move-in
Our 850 student volunteers (sophs) ensure your move-in day is stress-free. If you let us, we’ll unpack your vehicle, and ensure your belongings are taken straight to your room.

Clean and Cared for Facilities
We’re continually upgrading and renovating our residences to ensure that you can enjoy high quality, well-equipped accommodations. Common areas on your floor and throughout your building are cleaned every day. We also provide regular room cleaning.

Memories to Last a Lifetime
Residence enables you to meet new people, make connections with hundreds of other students, and engage with the greater Western community. Residence is where lifelong friendships begin.
