Supports in Residence:
Within our Residence community we strive to provide students with various supports and resources. Most of these supports are offered on a 24/7 basis. Not only are supports provided on the floor in which students are living, but also within the Residence community itself.
Residence Fellows are upper year students who live and work on each Residence floor. They are role models, resource people, helpers, community developers, and leaders for the students on their floors. A major part of their role is to help create a community that is conducive to learning, academic success, and personal growth and development. A Residence Fellow is a 24/7 support system for all students.
Residence Managers are full-time professional staff members who supervise Residence Fellows and support students. They act as an additional resource for students, and promote a positive community atmosphere. They are staff members who live within our Residence community and function on a 24/7 rotating on-call schedule, in order to provide students with constant support.
Another support we provide for students in Residence is our Residence counsellors. We provide short-term confidential counselling to help students manage a variety of mental/emotional challenges and promote healthy living. In addition to our three licensed counsellors, we work with housing staff to run events and activities in the Wellness Space and are home to the Mental Health Champions.
Attendant Services is a 24/7 program for students with special needs. They help to promote an independent lifestyle by providing personal support. For more information click here.
