•    Fully furnished student living
•    Build your social network at Residence Life events
•    Independent living in a safe community


Living With a Roommate

Moving into residence and meeting your roommate for the first time may be the start of a lifelong friendship! 

For many students this will be their first time away from home and/or living with a roommate, some friction is to be expected while everyone adjusts to these big changes. Give each other time and respect each other's space.

Roommates are encouraged to review our Roommate Agreement 2024 (PDF, 140kb) prior to move in, as a guideline for questions and common issues to be discussed. This document can be signed and referred to throughout yours stay in residence.


Opportunities to Get Involved 

We make getting involved easy - whether you are enjoying social activities with your friends, working together on academic projects, or joining in to plan events in the building - it is all right here for you.

Interested in joining the Residence Life team? Students are encouraged to apply! Skills and experiences gained from various positions in Residence Life help prepare students to be leaders in their future careers. Getting involved also enriches your personal college experience by making new friends, networking, and becoming an ambassador for Mohawk College.

Being involved in the residence means your stay will be more than just time away from home - it will create a home away from home. Get to know the people in your community and make connections that will last a lifetime.
