A Message from Lynn
The Mount has an established welcoming and vibrant Residence Life community. We offer three options for our students to choose from so that each student has the opportunity to choose a style that best fits individual needs. Besides the obvious benefit of convenience (close to classes, labs, dining hall, library, gym and more) Mount students will tell you living on campus is one of the best ways to become more involved on campus and connect with each other.
Each of our residence areas have a fully trained Residence Life Team of Resident Assistants (RAs) and a supervising Don. These individuals are students as well and they can identify with the needs and issues that our students face on a daily basis. The Residence Life Team is trained to help ease the transition to university and be a support to our students by fostering both academic and personal growth through programs and leadership. Our team is there for your student as a resource, information source, and friendly face through the academic year. We also have a specific team member, our Academic RA, designated to enhance the residence experience by primarily offering academic, programs, support and guidance throughout the year.
Residence Life, a division of Office of Student Experience, is connected to an even larger team of professionals on campus. As such we work closely with various departments within Student Services such as: Counseling, Disability Services, Health Office, Athletics and Recreation, International Student Center, Career Services, Aboriginal Student Center and Financial Aid to offer the best quality programming and resources that we can to each and every student.
Living in residence and being a part of the Mount campus community is an opportunity to enhance the university student experience by getting involved and make life-long, lasting friendships along the way.
We look forward to having your student live with us and we would welcome the chance to share in their residence life experience!
