On-Campus Housing

Loyalist’s Residences are peacefully nestled in a cozy wooded country setting on campus, close to many student life activities. With enough space for 476 students, Loyalist has five suite-style Residence buildings. We also have 104 spots in four fully furnished townhouse buildings. Our Residences are an easy and convenient way to access your classes and College services (computer labs, Health Centre, Fitness Centre, etc.). They are located a short three minute walk from our Main Building – Kente.

Students in Residence will share an apartment with other students which includes a full kitchen, two bathrooms and a living room. Heat, hydro, WiFi are included in your Residence fees.  For more information on Residence, please click here.
