It is important to us that you have the supports available to be academically successful and positively engage in our Residence community.
Many of the supports that are offered to you are available 24/7. Whether you are looking for the appropriate service on campus, having personal concerns, or wondering how you can get more involved in your community, there are plenty of resources to help you be the most successful student you can be!
Residence Fellows are upper year students who live and work on each Residence floor. You will have at least one living in your Residence community with you throughout the year.
These staff are role models, resource people, helpers, community developers, and leaders for you and your peers. A Residence Fellow is support for all students, and will help you transition into the community and university life.
Residence Managers are full-time professional staff members who supervise Residence Fellows and support students in their respective buildings. They act as an additional resource for you, and promote a positive community atmosphere.
The Residence Managers function on a 24/7 rotating on-call schedule, in order to provide students like you with constant support. They are also a friendly face in the community, so be sure to say hello if you see them!
These trained professionals provide short-term, confidential counseling to help students manage a variety of mental/emotional challenges and promote healthy living. Our Mental Health Champions also organize and implement a variety of activities, stress-busters, and events to help you maintain balance. These events are often run out of our renovated Wellness Space located in Renfrew House.
This is a peer based mentorship program to support Residence students in their transition to university. Our Mental Wellness Mentors offer coping strategies and structured supports to assist with your mental health, mental wellness, self-awareness and transitional concerns.
This fantastic program provides an alternative means of outreach that is non-judgmental, confidential and fosters healthy and positive engagement within the Residence and campus community. It is a great way to make connections with others and get extra support throughout the year.

Attendant Services is a 24/7 program for students who require special accommodation. They help to promote an independent lifestyle by providing personal support.
