Living in Residence Puts You in the Center of the Action on Campus

Steps away from classes, social events and Lancer games. Living in residence also means you’re not alone when you need help. Staff are on-call 24/7 and resident assistants (RAs) are here to help you make friends and become part of the UWindsor community. First-year students coming straight from high school are guaranteed a place if you get your deposit in on time. Want a single room? We have them. Want to share with a friend? No problem. If you’re taking engineering, nursing or science, we can even house you in “learning communities” with other students from your program. A meal plan is mandatory.
