MSVU offers three furnished Residence buildings on campus for all students: Assisi Hall, The Birches, and Westwood. Apart from the convenience of living close to classes, labs, the cafeteria, library, gym and more, students will tell you living on campus is one of the best ways to become more involved in campus life. We encourage you to learn more about your residence options. Residence Life photo gallery on Flickr »
