We believe that community starts with sharing common space—and a common spirit.



Housing is situated on campus and offers self-catering accommodation to students. Nestled in the heart of the Kingston metropolitan area, it is in close proximity to major shopping areas, such as New Kingston, Half-Way-Tree, Cross Roads and Downtown. Because of its location, residents have easy access to supermarkets, restaurants, stores, banks, galleries, theatres and hospitals.

The Hall of Residence comprises three blocks which accommodate approximately ninety (90) residents. Each block houses thirty (30) rooms. There are five (5) households on each block with six (6) rooms in each household.

Unlike high school where you’re in class seven hours a day, a truly rewarding college experience allows you to construct your own schedule (read: “school days” with class for two hours–or no class at all!). That means scholar-athletes, principal cellists, and quiz-bowl champions have plenty of time during the day to do what they love outside of the classroom. With over 400 clubs and a campus alive with yearly events and wild traditions, and you might wonder when students find time to study at all (somehow, they do).


Rigorous inquiry demands diverse perspectives. Academic programs and resources such as the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and International House serve a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.
