It is the goal of the Fanshawe College Residence to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment for you to live in and to promote your academic success and personal development while attending Fanshawe College.

  • We promote a community spirit in the residence as well as promoting participation in College and Fanshawe Student Union activities by planning events of interest to residents including sports, social activities and many off-campus events to encourage interaction with other residents and studenMenu Styled Linksts.

We do not condone many activities that are assumed to be acceptable in residence. We take a very strong position on these activities and discipline residents accordingly. Activities such as the use of illegal substances, underage drinking, inappropriate/disrespectful conduct towards residence and College staff is not tolerated and has resulted in too many evictions over the course of the last academic year. We do not provide a party location and expect all students to respect the rights of others in their pursuit of education.

We suggest all residents read the residence community standards and residence townhouse community standards documents to ensure that you are making the correct choice to live in the residence:

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact residence staff.
