Residence COVID-19 Updates

Live on campus

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, our operations may change in response to current public health recommendations. Additional safety measures may be implemented within Student Residences to match these operational changes. Should there be any change to policies, procedures or operations this will be communicated widely through a variety of channels.

As of Monday, August 24, masks must be worn in indoor public spaces and common areas or any time a two-meter physical distance cannot be maintained while within university facilities. This includes residence facilities and includes hallways, stairwells and laundry rooms. For more detailed information on this new policy please click here.

Residence is more than just four walls. Living on campus offers convenience, camaraderie and security in a supportive community that will help you get the most out of your university experience–both academically and socially.

Rise to the top of the class with supports like in-house tutors, peer studying opportunities, and access to living and learning communities. Life in residence will open up doors to group activities, sports and events that will lead to life-long friendships.

Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student there are several student residence options to choose from—including Paton College, Macpherson College and Burton’s Pond Apartments— each within quick walking distance to classes, labs, dining spaces, the library and The Works, Memorial’s fitness complex. Our Signal Hill Campus, just a short shuttle ride away, also has 87 rooms for graduate students.

When you put your head on your pillow, you can rest knowing you’re protected by 24/7 security, campus enforcement and a team of people trained in medical and mental health first aid.

There’s no better time to call Memorial home. Get details on how to apply to live here.
