SMU Campus Life
Everyone has a different lifestyle. Our residence allows you to select living options that best suit your needs and personal preferences.
Choose between co-ed and same gender floors, single, super single, double or apartment style rooms.
A 22-storey high rise, each floor contains four suites, each with one double and four single rooms with semi-private washrooms. Senior Suites are available for senior level students who prefer a private room and the option of cooking their own meals.
* Majority of classes are in Loyola Academic which is below and annexed to the Loyola Residence.
Therefore, your classes are just a short elevator ride away. Loyola lounges also include a kitchenette.
A low-rise building, each floor has a common lounge and three suites, with two single and two double rooms and semi-private washrooms.
* Small residence, big community. Vanier House is the smallest of the three residences and has a friendly and close knit community.
A 17-storey high-rise with apartment style rooms. Some apartments have two double rooms with a shared kitchen, bathroom and living/dining area, while other apartments have three rooms (super-single or single) with a shared kitchen and bathroom.
* Rice is a great place for students who want independence, with the convenience of living on campus.
Many students like the appeal of being able to cook their own food, but don’t forget to wash the dishes!
