Residence Life

It’s crazy that 2 months have already gone by! Over the past 2 months I have loved living in residence and making it my new home. Having roommates who are my best friends adds to the already positive experience that Nipissing has to offer. Moving away from home can definitely be overwhelming, but residence is an experience with events, fun and friendships to offer.

My roommates and I have decorated our suite for different occasions, brought extra seating, added photos and placed personal touches on our suite. We are often found hanging out together in the living room or inviting friends over.

I am happy to have chose Nipissing University and specifically love living in Chancellors House. The suite style residence’s that Nipissing has to offer are the perfect setup. The single bedrooms provide privacy and a quiet space to get homework done while the shared living room and kitchen are a perfect place for gatherings, movie nights, suite dinners and more.

You can never be bored living in residence with a large social scene on weekends to hanging out in the game room playing pool to meeting on floor common areas. Residence events are a lot of fun from Capture the Flag to trivia nights to floor potluck dinners, there is always something to do and more opportunities to meet people. It is important to always check residence Facebook pages to keep up to date on what is going on in your residence and on your floor.

Although the past 2 months have flown by, I am excited for the next 6 months in residence and to continue to make memories with my roommates, neighbours and friends.
