The Residence Advantage

Residence is more than just where you live, it is your home away from home. At McMaster we want to make sure that you are living in an environment that is supportive to your needs and exposes you to amazing opportunities for growth and development. Learning at university extends beyond the classroom and your Residence experience can play an important role in helping you develop life skills that will ensure your continued success in the future.

National research indicates that living on campus contributes to greater overall satisfaction with and success in university. Students who live in residence halls tend to make more friends, attain higher GPA’s, gain leadership experience, and manage their time more effectively than those who do not live in residence halls.
