Campus Living FAQ

Campus Living is located on the first floor of the Rice Centre at 491 Portage Ave. The office is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

As an international student, what should I know before arriving to residence?

We encourage all prospective students to look over the International Student Services Page for information regarding airport pick up, border letters, etc. They also host informational sessions and are available to answer all questions including but not limited to, study permits, health insurance, etc.

What are the safety protocols in residence?

Campus Living is providing extra cleaning and sanitization of high traffic areas and high touch points within residence. Sanitization wipes are provided in communal areas for all students, to encourage in-between cleanings.

Our office continues to limit foot traffic in the office by encouraging online payments and collaborates with facilities staff and the UWinnipeg HVAC team to ensure proper ventilation.

In our residence buildings, we use MERV-13 (or highest achievable) filters, which are changed regularly in all residence spaces to ensure air cleanliness.

I live in a Campus Living residence and suspect I have COVID-19. What should I do?

If you have flu-like symptoms, follow normal protocols by staying in your room, resting and minimizing your social contact. You may wish to access the Manitoba COVID-19 screening tool posted online by Shared Health Manitoba. 

Campus Living is able to provide rapid tests to students who inquire about them. If you require a rapid test, please contact our office at housing@uwinnipeg.ca.

If you live in residence and have tested positive for COVID-19 you will be required to quarantine in a pre-determined quarantine space.

Does Campus Living still host residence events?

Campus Living offers programming primarily in person, with some opportunities for a hybrid model. Campus Living also continues to provide social engagement content through our Instagram account @uwrestimes. Please follow for regular updates or contact your RA.

How is the meal plan affected?

Diversity Food Services has opened all locations for dine-in service. Students living in McFeetors Hall still have the option for room service. Please contact Diversity Foods for more information.
