Residences at Western University are some of the best in the country. In fact, the Globe and Mail's student satisfaction survey placed Western's residences number one for eleven consecutive years!

We are very proud of the residence facilities at Western and have designed this website to give you all the information you need about residence accommodation. Our Residence Life Programming is geared toward helping you achieve your academic goals while creating an atmosphere of community and personal growth. We strive to assist you in attaining valuable leadership and employability skills by providing countless personal and professional development opportunities.

Safety and Security are extremely important to us; day or night, someone is just a phone call away. The support of residence staff complements the numerous safety benefits of on-campus living, and contributes to your best possible residence experience!
