Living in residence is an experience like no other, and will provide you with memories that last a lifetime.

There are two styles of residence at Brock University

Traditional style residences have single and double rooms grouped into communities of ‘houses’ or ‘halls’. Students will purchase a meal plan.

Townhouse style residences offer the convenience of living on-campus with a more independent lifestyle. Students have the option of cooking their own meals, or purchasing an optional meal plan.

Student Life at Brock

Brock has always been a place for well-rounded people to nurture both sides of their brain. Yes, both sides. Not just the academic side of your brain, the one that you take to your classes, but the other side too. The side of the brain that drives your passions outside of the classroom.

At Brock, these diverse passions are not only welcomed but celebrated, and students can become better versions of themselves. We are not numbers; we are individuals encouraged to make our own marks, and develop both sides of our brain.
