Mount Royal has two residence complexes — East Residence and West Residence — designed for independent student living. Combined, they accommodate about 1,000 students.
All residents have private bedrooms (keyed entry) and, depending on the unit configuration, share common living areas.
There are barrier free units in both the East and West Residences. If you have an accessibility need, note this on your application and contact the Residences Services office.
