Student Housing

Safety and Security

The U of L is committed to keeping our campus community as safe as possible.  With approximately 8,500 students on campus (1000+ student residents inclusive), it is our goal to help and protect our student community.   Collectively, Residence Assistants, Housing Services Staff and 24/7 Security Services (Campus Safety) personnel strive to create a safe environment within our facilities.

Rez Support

Your student will be surrounded by a community of residents going through similar experiences. Having peers to connect with is very valuable, and having a student leader on the floor can be even more helpful.

Returning Students

The University of Lethbridge on-campus residences are home to 1000+ students. All full-time students from afar are encouraged and welcome to apply, as early as September 15th for the following academic year!  Demand for residence is high.  We are unable to GUARANTEE ROOMS to all applicants even if they previously lived in residence.

Housing room assignments are made based on compatibility and lifestyle selections made during the online application process. 

Prospective Students

The University of Lethbridge on-campus residences are home to 1000+ students. All full-time students (9 credits or more per term) whose permanent address is 100km away or further, are encouraged and welcome to apply, as early as September 15th for the following academic year!

Due to high demand, we are unable to GUARANTEE ROOMS to all applicants.

All residence buildings are located within a 10 min walk to reach classes, computer labs, dining outlets, athletic facilities, and library or study spaces.

Moving Out Your Student

The end of the Academic Year (April) can be a stressful time for students between final exams, packing, and moving out.

To help students prepare for this stressful time we deliver move-out letters and key envelopes to all resident mail boxes. The letter will outline cleaning and move-out expectations and other important move-out information. 

Staying Connected

Your student is living away from home likely for the first time! Now that your student has moved into residence, your role as a coach will be vital. Encourage your student to use the resources and student services available at the U of L and stay in contact with your student.

Enjoying the Residence Experience

Living in residence means living surrounded by community where many of the residents are going through similar transitions and new learning experiences. It’s a great time and place to meet new people and gain transferable knowledge and skills. Living with roommates can be part of this great experience, but occasionally problems arise. Sharing a living space requires patience, understanding, compromise, and above all, communication. 

Eating Right

Waste little time on grocery shopping and dishes! Your student can eat right and save time as first year residents are automatically enrolled in a Commuter Residence Dining Plan, with no option to “opt out”. This is a room and board program.  We believe the room and board program is an important part of the success of your students first year in university.
