Housing at ULethbridge


Welcome to your home away from home!

Build community | Have fun | Make the grade

To ensure a smooth transition to University, living on campus is a great option, especially during your first year! Studies show that students who live on campus are more likely to have a successful university experience.
Why? In a word: access.
Advantages to living on campus

As a resident, you are steps away from:

  • classes
  • professors’ offices
  • student services
  • social, exercise and recreational spaces
  • study rooms
  • academic programming
  • and more!

You have a built-in community to boost your academic performance and social success. You’ll make lifelong friends, find study partners, develop tolerance and fine-tune your interpersonal skills.

Organization of Residence Students (ORS)

Residents belong to the largest student club on campus, the Organization of Residence Students (ORS), which provides support and plans fun activities for residents.

Residence Assistants

Each section in our single-student residences has at least one Residence Assistant (RA) who upholds and enforces the policies in the Residence Community Handbook and coordinates fun social events, educational opportunities, and everyday interactions.

Our Residence Assistants are trained in:

  • emergency response
  • standard first aid
  • psychological first aid
