Our Residence Life staff have gone to considerable lengths to ensure that the residence experience is welcoming, enriching, supportive, and comfortable. Residence is more than just a place to eat and sleep. Your student's choice to live on campus while studying at Western has many benefits, including close connections to the campus, enabling your student to make friends more quickly and easily than if he or she lived off-campus; opportunities to become involved in the many programs and activities that have been developed to support academic studies and personal growth; and convenient access to classes and campus facilities.
We've created a Parent's website so that it may help to ease the transition for you as your student enters university life. It answers some important questions that may be on your mind, and most importantly, we want you to know that your loved one is in good hands.
