Student Residence Information

If you are a student who requires accommodation related to accessibility, it is important that you register with Accessibility Services as soon as possible.
Note that for the Academic year 2020-2021 Victoria College will only provide Single rooms.

First-year students

Most first years are assigned to a shared double room. We make every effort to accommodate a preference for a specific roommate. Both applicants must indicate the other on their applications. To find a compatible roommate, we consider the lifestyle information section of your application. Our priority is first-year students who receive the housing guarantee. 65% of our beds are allocated to first-year students.
Room assignments are emailed late August.
Residence and Meal plan fees are posted to ACORN in August after tuition fees have been posted.
*****For the Academic year 2020-2021 all students will be assigned to single rooms.*****

Upper-year students

As a returning residence student you will have the option of self selecting your room. If you are requesting a double room you will need to find your own roommate. A 10% discount is offered to eligible upper-year students.
Please be aware that space is not always available in the residence or floor of your choice. You must have an AGPA of at least 2.0 for the 2019–2020 academic year and the balance on your ACORN must be paid in full by the end of classes in April.
****NOTE: For the 2020-2021 Academic year we will only be offering single rooms****

Residence Buildings

Annesley Hall

When it opened in 1903, Annesley Hall was the first residence built specifically for women in Canada. It was renovated in 1988 and houses female students in single, double and triple rooms. Annesley is known for its close-knit community and for the fact that no two rooms are the same.

Rowell Jackman Hall

Due to their architecture and age, our residences can be challenging living environments for students with accessibility needs. In 1993 Rowell Jackman Hall was built in accordance with the accessibility standards of the time, but even it no longer meets some current accessibility requirements.

Our suite-style residence offers single-sex and co-ed housing options. Each suite houses three to seven students in single and double rooms. The suites have common rooms, one or two washrooms, shared kitchen facilities and a living room. This residence is home to primarily upper-year students, although some first-year students are also housed in double rooms.

Some suites are designed to accommodate residents with accessibility needs, and the building is wheelchair-accessible from the parkade level.
