Your residence fees provide you with a comprehensive accommodation package. You don’t have to worry about all the extras so you can focus your energy on your studies.

When you live in residence, your fees cover your accommodation costs, all utilities, furnishings, appliances, etc. The only other costs would be your preferred internet services, a parking pass, or a meal plan if you decide to purchase one.

The residence has dedicated parking on campus located right next to the residence and is available for an additional cost. No parking is allowed in the campus lots overnight with the exception of the residence parking lot. Residents may purchase a parking pass from the Georgian College Residence.
