Women's Residence Life
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-19 year!
The St. Joseph’s College Women's residence is a brand new building situated right in the heart of the U of A Campus. Students are welcome to apply regardless of their cultural, spiritual or academic backgrounds. The new women's residence accommodates 284 female students and has been designed with security in mind. There is 24-hour security of the building and resident living areas have secured access which means only residents and their guests can gain access to those areas.
The new residence is steps away from public transit (buses and the LRT), the Students Union Building, newly renovated athletic facilities, and the Faculties of Medicine & Dentistry, Education, Nursing, Science, ALES, Native Studies, Law, Physical Education & Recreation and the list goes on. Many shops and restaurants are also located nearby. Living in the women’s only residence means that you will have all the conveniences within close proximity, reducing time and generally making life easier for you.
