Residence Life

Fall 2021 in Residence

MacEwan Residence will be open to welcome our residents. We are implementing a few changes that will ensure the residence is a safe place for students to stay.

Students in Residence

Paint nights and potlucks, study-buddy sessions and heart-to-heart chats, pet therapy sessions and volunteer opportunities. One of the best things about living in residence is being part of a community that learns, plays and grows together.

Friends and mentors

Live here and you immediately become part of a unique community. Sometimes, roommates become friends. Other times, you meet your new BFF at a social event or in the study lounge. And sometimes it’s just nice to have someone to say hello to as you move through your day. With about 800 people living here, you’re bound to meet someone whose interests and experiences bring you together.

Our team includes residence assistants (who are students just like you), other student staff members and professional staff. What do they have in common? They all look forward to making your experience in residence a good one. They point you in the right direction when you have questions, host events that will get you out of your room and even help you and your roommate see eye to eye when things go sideways. Sound advice and friendly support are just around the corner.

Academic success

We support your academic success through study groups, private and group study rooms, skills-based workshops, exam kits and many other initiatives. As well, we have designated quiet floors, nightly quiet hours and a 24/7 quiet study space before and during final exams.

If you want to know more about how we support academic success—or if you have an idea you’d like to try—speak to your RA.

The sense of community in residence makes this place feel like home—and the Mario Kart tournaments are awesome!”

Social events

Video game tourneys, shopping trips, escape room excursions—take part in fun, stress-busting events throughout the year. Let us help you find that important balance between study time and social time. If you have an idea for an event, let your RA know. They are always looking for new ideas.

Living here has made my university life better because there are so many people to do things with all the time.
