Designated Quieter Floors

In some residences we have designated quieter floors. These are designed for those students who wish to live in a quieter environment during the school year.

Substance-Free Floor

Students may apply to live on a Substance-Free Floor, where no alcohol or illicit substances are permitted or tolerated.  (The Residence Standards do not permit underage drinking or illicit substances.)

Single Gender Floor

Every year there is a least one single-gender floor in Residence.  These floors are based on demand.

Gender Inclusive Suites:

Gender inclusive suites are offered only to the upper year residents of Frontenac and Leeds Houses as well as 10th Floor Lennox & Addington House. These suites are offered throughout the buildings based on student demand. Students of different genders will have the option to share a suite, including the meal preparation and bathroom facilities, by completing the appropriate section on their Residence Information Form.

Only those who request gender inclusive suites will be considered for those assignments. It is assumed that all other students in those buildings prefer single-gender suites.

While we strive to provide all students with their room and floor preferences, we are not able to fulfill all requests.
