Residence Buildings

We stress that bricks and mortar don’t make your stay in residence a memorable one. It’s the people with whom you will be living.  Visit the residence building and amenity page for descriptions, picture galleries and 360 degree tours of each residence.

All Brock University Residence rooms are already fully furnished with a twin bed, a dresser, a desk and chair, closet or wardrobe, shelving, and garbage bins. Townhouse Style residences also have furnished living rooms and kitchens equipped with a sofa, a chair, tables, and eating area. If you’re thinking about bringing extra furnishings and/or appliances you MUST read our Allowable Appliances and Allowable Furnishings documents. Due to your room and unit being fully furnished there is limited space for extra furnishings and appliances, and anything that is brought in must be made of metal or plastic. Why? To help reduce fire safety hazards and potential pest problems. Everyone wants to be on the safe side!

You will need to bring your own linens for a single/twin-sized bed. Alternatively, the Department of Residences has partnered with Residence Linens to facilitate delivery of a linen package for your arrival.  You will have to wait until you get your room assignment before ordering linens but it doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your decorating scheme. When ordering, ensure you select Brock University as your school and give your correct building and room number.

Many students choose to pre-order a rental refrigerator (and freezer for townhouses) so that they meet the residence guidelines for furnishings.  This is not mandatory but to avoid disappointment make sure you review the allowable appliances guide.   The Department of Residences has partnered with Coldex Rentals to help make your transition to living in residence more smoothly.
