Welcome to Residence
UNB considers residence living to be part of a student's total academic experience. Living in residence encourages the refinement of individual and group life skills, engenders concern for others, and helps residents develop a sense of community responsibility.
The purpose of this online guide is to inform students of the various services and policies which help to build and maintain the UNB Residence Community. Residential life at UNB aims to provide the student with an environment that encourages cultural, social, and intellectual growth within an academic context.
Plenty of choices
There are fourteen residence houses at UNB: one men’s, one women’s, ten co-ed, one apartment style and one suite style.
The rooms are furnished with desks, bookshelves, wastebaskets, bulletin boards, beds, dressers, and wardrobes. Within each residence, lounges, study rooms, laundry and other facilities are also provided. Each resident, with the exception of those at Maggie Jean Chestnut and Suite Style, are required to participate in the residence dining program.
The residence community
The UNB Residence Community is administered by Residence Team Staff consisting of the Executive Director of Residential Life, Campus & Conference Services, the Director of Residential Life, Residence Coordinators and, in each house, a House Don - a faculty/staff member or senior graduate student - who lives in the residence.
The Don is assisted by Hall Proctors and Educational Proctors - senior undergraduates who help the students adjust to residence and university life. Additionally, each house elects a House Committee that works with the Residence Coordinator, Don, Hall Proctors and Educational Proctors to coordinate house social, educational, charity, and athletic activities.
The key to your success at UNB and enjoyment of residence is to get involved early and to stay involved.
Don't be afraid to volunteer for a house committee or to help out at a house event. You can also participate in one of several residence-wide committees and get connected with other houses on campus. You will find that being involved keeps you aware of what's going on, keeps you interested as a student, and will make the year truly special.
