Living On-Campus: The Real Deal

Staying in residence isnít just about where you live for eight months, itís about the experience that will come out of your time on campus. There is nowhere better to meet new people from exciting and different places, be it from another part of Canada or from somewhere halfway across the world. Residence is where you will create the relationships that will last you a lifetime.

Residence is the best place to make the transition to university life. We have a staff of 24 Resident Assistants who are trained to assist students with this transition and in particular help students balance both the academic and social aspects of their new life. On top of all their other duties, RAs also plan fun events for their buildings such as Bowling Nights in Sherbrooke, Open Mic Nights, and even Charity Poker Tournaments. The RAs are available day and night to help make your stay in residence the best it can be.

With the convenience of living on campus, you are never far away from anything you will need. The dining hall is a short walk from each of our residence buildings, meaning meals are always close by, and with your Gaiter Card, eating is as simple as a swipe. There are four different food service locations on campus offering a variety of menus from quick ďOn-The-GoĒ snacks for right before class to full All-You-Care-to-Eat meals, all day, every day.

Each residence has Satellite TV offered in the common lounges with a multitude of different channels to choose from, as well as a games room with Billiards, Ping Pong, or Foosball. Laundry facilities are also located in each building. Other services on campus include the John H. Price Sports Centre, the W.B. Scott Arena, the Bassett Memorial Library, Centennial Theatre, St. Mark's Chapel, and Health Services, among others!

Bishopís prides itself on offering a safe and secure campus, with a 24-hour security team that is in constant contact with the RAs and can deal with any emergencies that will arise over the school year. All of the RAs are first aid trained and can deal with a variety of emergency situations and can make referrals to campus resources should the need arise.
