Brantford campus residences are situated in new and newly-renovated buildings, some with heritage designations that date as far back as 1870. Authentic restorations have allowed for modern amenities, such as wireless internet access, while maintaining aspects of historical charms, such as cornerstones, mouldings and 3-foot window sills.

All of our residences are apartment-style, which means you have a kitchen in your unit so you can prepare your own meals. Our residences are co-ed and 80% feature single rooms.
