Get involved

Many students who live in residence have a positive and rewarding experience and want to give back or take on a leadership role in the residence community.

Find out how you can get involved and contribute your residence and to the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton campus.

Join a House Committee

House Committees are elected bodies of students who plan events for their respective houses. Committee members plan fun and inclusive house activities for their residence and offer leadership advice on house affairs. Please note: House Committees must submit a Student Events Application for approval prior to the event. 

House Committee leaders are role models and must abide by the following ethics:

  • maintaining and agreeing upon a high code of standards for the House Committee and the house as a whole
  • respecting the integrity and protecting the physical and emotional welfare of house residents
  • respecting the convictions and values of the house
  • handling house dues and house revenue with integrity

For more information on how to get involved, contact your House Committee or residence life coordinator (RLC).

Join a House Orientation Committee

Each September, UNB welcomes new students to our Fredericton campus. In order to ease their transition to university life and to provide a warm welcome, an extensive Orientation Program is organized and implemented by academic faculties, the residence community and the UNB Student Union. House Orientation Committees are an important part of this process.

House Presidents and their respective RLC chair the House Orientation Committees. Members include:

  • House President
  • House Vice President
  • Additional returning house members (maximum of 8 per house, excluding McLeod and Joy Kidd which may have a maximum of 13)

To apply to be on your House Orientation Committee, pick up an application from your RLC and return it to them by the application deadline (TBD).
