Building Profile

Make Alumni House your new home after your first year. Alumni House has been going strong since 1986, and has:

  • 224 beds
  • Laundry facilities on ground floor
  • Mandatory meal plan; the nearby dining halls at Elgin Hall and Medway-Sydenham Hall are within a two-minute walk
  • Two common study rooms
  • Main lounge with billiards, ping pong, and vending machines
  • Workout room
  • Music practice room
  • Back patio

Note: Residence for upper-year students will not be offered for the 2021-22 academic year. Uncertainty associated with COVID-19 and the rollout of vaccines has added a level of complexity to our planning. In order to honour our residence guarantee to the incoming first-year class, we are unable to accept upper-year residence applications at this time.

Alumni House may house first-year students if de-densification is implemented based on the health unit’s directives. undefined
