Welcome to Your Home Away from Home

Welcome to Residence at Mount Saint Vincent University! Living in residence will add a completely new dimension to your university years.

Apart from the convenience of living close to all campus resources (e.g., library, dining hall, campus security, and gym), you also have the opportunity to become more involved in campus life; investigate the possibilities, take advantage of residence leadership opportunities and make the most of your university experience!

We encourage you to take a peek below to learn more about your residence options, and invite you to book a personalized campus tour to see your options in person!

Important Update for Fall 2020

Earlier this spring, the University advised that all programs would be delivered online for Fall 2020, in keeping with public health directives and MSVU’s commitment to the safety and well being of our students, faculty, and staff.

In consultation with Nova Scotia Public Health, and with student safety at the forefront, we have determined that we will be able to safely operate our student residences at 50% capacity for the fall 2020 term – or 214 students. Unfortunately, this means that not every student who has applied will be able to live in residence this fall.

All students who have applied for a residence room for 2020-21 should check their MSVU email accounts for more details!

Should you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ page or contact us directly at .

While it’s too soon to say what the Winter semester will bring, we can’t wait to have all our residence students back on campus and sincerely hope it happens soon.
