The University of Calgary offers a wide range of residences on campus as a significant proportion of undergraduate and graduate students reside on campus. Approximately 2 500 students and faculty members live on-campus.

Living in residence at the University of Calgary provides you with many opportunities and benefits including:

?             Being in the heart of it all – Living in residence puts you close to all the action. Social activities, leadership and volunteer opportunities organized by residence are just outside your door. And, any campus event or entertainment is only a short walk away.

?             Making life-long friends and lasting memories – It’s much easier to meet people when they live right next door. These are often friendships that last a lifetime.

?             Living on your own, with all the comforts of home – You’ll have the support you need with the freedom of independence. Study rooms, workshops, free Internet, laundry facilities and more.

?             Support networks and opportunity for growth – Get the extra support and growth opportunities through the many extra-curricular education programs, on-campus resources and ongoing support throughout your studies.

?             Security :The buildings are secure 24/7. Each residence hall has live-in student and professional staff members to respond to situations. Easy to access, the Safewalk program will accompany you whenever you need or want it.

First-year students under the age of 21 live in single or double occupancy rooms in a first-year dormitory-style residence and are guaranteed residence for the first two years of study.

Graduate students, international or domestic students that have already completed an undergraduate degree live in studio to two-bedroom apartments in Crowsnest Hall.

•             Rundle Hall and Kananaskis Hall - built in the early 1960s when the university relocated to its present campus. Currently houses first year undergraduate students who choose to live on campus.

•             Glacier and Olympus Hall - built prior to the 1988 Winter Olympics as the athletes' Olympic Village. These halls currently serve as residences for upper year students. Also built during this time period, Norquay, Brewster & Castle Halls have since been demolished.

•             Yamnuska Hall - opened in 2011 for sophomore students. The two and three bedroom suites are designed to ensure that students experience residence life by sharing space, but also ensures that each student has a private room. Yamnuska Hall also houses one of campus' Starbucks, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

•             Aurora Hall - opened in 2015 for upper-year students and replaced the demolished Norquay, Brewster and Castle Halls.

•             Crowsnest Hall - opened in 2015 for professional and graduate students.

•             Varsity Courts - townhouses designed specifically for family housing.

•             Hotel Alma - the university's own hotel that features 96 rooms and amenities for guests.

 

The university has few scholarships for international students. They are considered once their application is finalised.
