"UNB considers living in Residence a part of experiencing the overall University experience. Studies show that students who live in Residence perform better academically, are better adjusted socially and are more likely to finish their Degree and graduate." (E.Z. Plantes. ACUHO Talking Stick, V29, #4)

Your home, our community
Living in residence allows an opportunity to meet friends and Residence Life helps support student success by encouraging growth, educating character and enhancing the university experience. Students living in both the Dunn and Mackay Residence are an easy walk from their classes, library, fitness facilities, food hall, bookstore and much more. Both residences are security locked and, with only staff and residence students having keys to enter the buildings, it making them a safe living environment for residence students.
