Burton's Pond Apartments

Burton's Pond apartments consists of five apartment-style residences surrounding one side of Burton's Pond. Each of the five 'Courts' is home to approximately 32 apartments and provides a high level of independence for individual residents.

Renovations will be starting in Burton's Pond Apartments through the 2021 spring semester. While this will decrease the number of individual students per apartment we hope that the newly renovated spaces will better meet the housing needs of our students. As of fall 2021, each apartment (regardless if it has yet been renovated) will be limited to two individual students. This will allow each student an office/study space, a private bedroom and a shared kitchen, living room and washroom. All apartments are fully furnished.

Burton's Pond Apartments are just a short walk from academic buildings and the campus tunnel and sky walk system. Accessible apartments are available in Cartier Court. Meal plans are not mandatory but are available.

Residence Fees

$2,408 CAD, per semester
