Hey everyone! So I hope everyone had an amazing March break, and that you took the time to do something fun or relax from school work. This week seemed to fly by for us here at Brock, mainly because we had so many people come for a campus tour! It was so great to see so many interested students and their parents out, to see our amazing campus and have the opportunity to hear about what life is like as a Brock student.

Some of the most popular questions I had this week were about residence. Since a lot of students are just starting to receive offers right now, a lot of them who were on the tours were asking things like which style of residence to live in, how to apply for residence, what can you bring, and how much it costs. So, here’s a little bit of a run down of how to apply for residence and what style of residence to choose.

Here at Brock we have two styles of residence, traditional and non-traditional. Traditional is essentially dorm-style, there are double and single rooms grouped into hallways, and students living in this style eat in a dining hall paid for by using a meal plan. Non-traditional here at Brock is townhouse style, which typically has about four to five people living in each one, and there are double and single rooms, with two washrooms, a living area and a kitchen. It’s 100% up to you of what style of residence you would like to live in, since you are allowed to rank your choices when you apply.

Residence is guaranteed to all incoming first-years from high school, as long as you also have your application and deposit in by June 1st (so don’t wait too long to apply!!!). You can also go to the residence page if you want to take a virtual tour of all the residences here, as well you can find a price break down of each residence. Here‘s a link to our residence page for more information.

I lived in residence last year, and I had an amazing time, and definitely recommend to all you future badgers out there who want to have an awesome first year experience!!:)


About Katelyn

Hey everyone! My name’s Katelyn and I’m in my fourth year of the concurrent education program here at Brock at the Junior/Intermediate level with a teachable in French. I have always had a passion for working with children, so I knew that the Con Ed program here at Brock was the perfect fit for me! After I finish my five years here, I hope to work as a French teacher in an elementary school. I also hope to have the opportunity to teach in another country, since I love to travel and experience new places and cultures. I grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, but have been fortunate enough to call St. Catharines my home for the past three years and I look forward to what sorts of adventures I will get up to during my last year of undergraduate studies here. This is also my third year as a Campus Experience Coordinator, so hopefully I can answer any questions you may have about being a university student!
