Paton College

Paton College is named after John Lewis Paton, who was President of Memorial University College from 1925 to 1933.

From the moment you arrive you will sense the history and tradition of Paton College. Built in the 1960's, when the university moved to its current location, the residences were designed to reflect the Victorian era architecture seen throughout the city of St. John's.

The nine residence-hall style 'Houses' of Paton College are arranged around a courtyard (Hunter Square) and are named after key figures in the history of Memorial University and the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the decades since, our residences have been home to many students who have gone on to become leaders in both their professions and communities.

All the Paton College residences are co-educational and are home to approximately 100 residents each. The accommodations are mostly in double occupancy rooms, with washroom facilities on each wing. Each residence has a TV room, computer room, small kitchen, study rooms, and lounges.

Each Paton College residence is managed by a Residence Coordinator and staffed with four Resident Assistants and an Academic Assistant. The Residence Life staff provide a high level of support and guidance that ensures that your residence experience will be fun, exciting, and educational; making Paton College the ideal environment for first year students.
