Campus Living FAQ

Campus Living operates out of the Rice Building, located at 491 Portage Ave., Monday to Friday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm.

For more information, refer to the FAQ below.

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.

Is it worth living in residence if the majority, or all, of my academic commitments are online?

Living in residence can play a huge part in the university experience. Those who live in residence highlight the sense of community, personal connection with peers, and the academic and personal support available while living amongst other students.

Campus Living is looking forward to adapting and providing a positive and supportive experience for those who choose to live on campus. Those who choose to live at home and commute this upcoming year, will always have the opportunity to apply to residence for future terms/years.

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.

Campus Living continues to limit foot traffic in the office by encouraging online payments. Campus Living works in collaboration with facilities staff and the HVAC team to ensure proper ventilation.

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

I live in Campus Living residence and suspect I have the virus. 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.

Will Campus Living still host residence events?
