Barrie Residence

Barrie Residence

Georgian College’s Barrie Campus residence provides not only accommodations, but also a welcoming, safe environment where students can make friends, get involved, grow and develop.

Why Georgian Residences?

The residence houses 524 students in an eight-storey building overlooking the campus to the west and Little Lake to the north. Most residence suites accommodate two students with each student having a private bedroom. All doors in the residence, including bedroom doors, are controlled by electronic key card access to assist in the safety and security of our residents.

The Georgian College Barrie residence is professionally operated and managed by Campus Living Centres.
