Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the perfect mix of city vibes and scenic nature. Boasting beautiful residential areas and a lively entertainment and culture scene, London has a population of more than 400,000, but still has a ‘Forest City’ community feel. Whether you stay in one of our residence buildings, live with your family in Western Apartments or find a great rental on Richmond Row—London will feel like home.

Living on campus has its advantages! You’ll be close to class and have access to facilities that will benefit your studies and social life. Not to mention utilities are included, and you’ll have the convenience of amenities needed to succeed in your studies just minutes away.
The residence experience is like no other. This is your opportunity to meet new friends and enjoy the convenience of living on campus, with amenities and support right where you live! Residence makes it easy for you to meet others and succeed academically, as live-in Student Leaders like Dons and Academic and Leadership Programmers are available to plan events and provide resources.
