Your Home Away from Home
At YU we believe there are great benefits to living incommunity. Living on campus is an important aspect of the college where students have the opportunity to grow socially and spiritually, as well as academically. The mission of Residence Life at York University is to provide a healthy community environment supportive of each student's need for living and desires for personal growth.
The university offers several housing options, all focused on providing a safe space to build community. We offer traditional dormitory style, suite-style or apartment-style living. By living on campus, you can learn to communicate effectively with a diverse range of people, make lifelong friendships, become more independent and discover new insights about yourself and others. Our residence hall staff, consisting of nearly 50 RAs and RCs, is trained and passionate about helping you make the most of your time in college, navigate challenges that arise and grow during your time on campus.
