The residence system at Brock University accommodates nearly 2,500 students in seven residence buildings or complexes.
Approximately two-thirds of the beds in the residence system are in single rooms; the remainder are in double rooms. (There are no triple or quadruple occupancy rooms.) About half the beds are in traditional or semi-suite style residences and the other half are in townhouses. DeCew is our only traditional style residence, there are three semi-suite style residences: Vallee, Earp and Lowenberger. There are two townhouse-style residences: Village and Quarry View. Gateway Suites, a suite-style residence designed for senior students, opened in September 2015. Each residence has its own distinct characteristics; however, there are many similarities among all residence facilities.
Within all of our residences, the term “single” means a single room that is not shared with another student. The term “double” means that the room is shared between two students. We do not have any accommodations where more than 2 students share a bedroom.
There are two service desks that operate 24/7 during the term. The North Service Desk is located in DeCew Residence, near stairwell 14. It serves students living in residences on the north side of campus: DeCew, Vallee, Earp, Quarry View and Gateway Suites. The South Service Desk is located in the lobby of Lowenberger Residence. It serves students living on the south side of campus: Lowenberger and the Village.
