Bethune Residence

The Bethune Residence is the home for approximately 260 undergraduate students, the majority of them in first year. Our residence offers both traditional style (floors 7-14) and suite style (floors 2-6) accommodation. In the traditional floors the rooms are both single and double occupancy with shared kitchenettes, bathrooms and common rooms. The suite-style floors contain both 4 and 12-person suites, each with single and double bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and common room. Floor plans and a virtual tour are available here.

The residence is coed with the exception of the 5th floor (suite style) and the 10th floor (traditional style), which are female-only floors.

The Residence Life Coordinator is responsible for the whole residence and is assisted by dons, programmers, and night porters.

Residence space is guaranteed to all first-year students who meet the housing application deadline of June 1. First-year students occupy the double and single rooms on the traditional floors.

The residence is subdivided into houses, each overseen by a don:
