In times when it is tough to travel or make it to social events, it's still possible to keep your spirits high! Accessing online wellness, learning, virtual tours and games can be the perfect solution. Here's a collection of our favourite online and free programs for you to check out.
A Year in the Life
Unless you’re one of those fearless types, you’re probably feeling a little nervous about coming to university. Moving away from home and taking that next step can be intimidating, but don’t worry—in residence, we have academic programming, support services and incredible events to ease your transition to Western.
Exclusive Residence Offer
At Western, we value and recognize students with high academic achievement. For those first-year students living in residence whose final admission average is 90% or higher, we are excited to extend to you an exclusive offer to live in residence for your second year.
As part of our Commitment to Diversity, we are pleased to offer both single-gender and mixed-gender rooms or suites as an option, enhancing flexibility so all students feel comfortable in the place they call home.
If a student chooses the "mixed-gender" option when completing the online Residence Placement Questionnaire, we will not consider their gender identity when placing them in a room or suite with other student(s). They will be matched with someone else based on their lifestyle preferences (tidiness, study habits, bedtime, etc). As a result, they may be assigned a roommate or suitemate(s) who identifies as the same gender, or with someone whose gender identity is different than theirs. Mixed-gender room(s) is an opt-in process, and accommodations will be available based on demand. For more information, read our Frequently Asked Questions.
