Residence

Living in residence

Living right on campus is a great way to get the most out of your experience at UNB, and students who apply by the May 15 deadline are guaranteed a room. Living in residence means you won’t have to worry about commuting to campus or making monthly payments, giving you more time to focus on what matters to you.

With Wi-Fi access, laundry facilities, kitchenette spaces and more, living in residence provides you with everything you need right on campus. And when you join our residence community, you have access to a team of support staff who are ready to help you. This includes proctors, your leaders within the residence community who are there to ensure you have a positive and supportive living environment.

The majority of our residences are co-ed, with one all-male and one all-female. While all rooms are essentially the same size, the layout of each room differs from residence to residence. Each residence organizes an annual fundraising event for their specific house charity, such as the Bridges House Polar Dip which raises funds for the IWK Children’s Hospital. Unique residence traditions include Harrison House’s Great Pumpkin Sacrifice, which has been happening since 1973 - making it the longest-running residence tradition on campus!

Dining on campus

Students living in residence are required to have a meal plan, and students living off-campus have the option to purchase one. Most UNB students enjoy their meals in McConnell Hall, our primary dining hall. Students living in Lady Dunn Hall, Joy W. Kidd House and Tibbits Hall also have access to the DKT dining hall, and students living in McLeod House have access to an in-house meal hall on the first floor of their residence. Our buffet-style approach offers a wide variety of choices each day, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. If you have specific dietary needs, our dining staff will work with you to make your dining experience the best it can be!
