Experience living on your own

Welcome third and fourth year students. When you live in Townhouses, it’s like creating your own small family. Live with other housemates and experience what Townhouses has to offer, including communal outdoor living space, summer picnics and more. Townhouses are four-bedroom, private single room residence that are primarily made up of upper year undergraduate students. Townhouse living prepares you for life outside of university.


With the fresh air, outdoor activities and study sessions - living with roommates has never been better. Create your own community, live with other housemates and explore what the Townhouses have to offer. All townhouses are gender inclusive.  Residents can create roommate groups to live with friends or create the gender mix they are looking for.  Each room is single-occupancy only (i.e., no roommates, private) which means that you won't have to share your room with anybody. All Townhouse residents share common spaces such as: washroom (2 per townhouse), kitchen, living room, and laundry (located across the complex, not in the townhouse).
