Student Housing


First year students living in Mt Blakiston House, University Hall or Piikani House are automatically enrolled in a minimum Commuter Residence Dining plan, with no option to "opt out." This is a "room and board" program.

Open Communication 

The key to successful roommate relations is open, honest communication: It is better to know how everyone feels about issues before problems arise.


Welcome to your home away from home. Living with others in a residence is different from living in a private apartment or house. What you may feel comfortable with in a private or independent apartment may not be safe or appropriate in a shared residential environment.

Please be respectful of your roommates/suitemates and ensure that you are familiar with all guest procedures.
