Frequently Asked Questions
When you move into CapU Residence you will become a part of an engaging and supportive community, designed to help you learn and grow, while meeting new people and making lasting friendships. Our Residence Life team (which includes our student Residence Advisors and live-in professional Residence Life Facilitator) is here to help you make the most of your residence experience!
Students who live in residence are invited to participate in regular programming throughout the year. Our Residence Advisors ensure that there is always something engaging happening in our community by planning events including:
“I really love Residence Advisor events such as capture the flag, karaoke nights, movie nights, and ice cream sundaes.” – Lucy, 1st Year Early Childhood Education
Our Residence Advisors provide students living in our community with the support and resources they need to be successful personally and academically. All of our Residence Advisors receive training in peer helping, mentorship, and crisis response to ensure they have the tools
necessary to provide assistance in a variety of situations.
Students who live in our community support each other as the live and grow together. For many of our students, living in residence is like being a part of a family.
“Residence is more than just a place to sleep and eat. It’s a place of family. It’s group of students and staff working together to create a community filled with friendship and support. Everyone is here for each other, I couldn’t ask for a better place to learn and grow as a
student. – Dylan, 2nd Year Motion Picture Arts
Our Residence Life Team also works to ensure that our community is safe and welcoming for everyone. Students are encouraged to hold one another accountable for their actions and to contribute positively to our community. All members of our community agree to follow our
Residence Standards which outline expectations for residents. In the event that these expectations are not met, our Residence Life Team respond by providing students with the opportunity to learn and grow from these experiences, while still maintaining the safety of our community.
