Campus living

Residence & Food Services

Living in residence puts you in the center of the action on campus

Steps away from classes, social events and Lancer games. Living in residence also means you’re not alone when you need help. Staff are on-call 24/7 and resident assistants (RAs) are here to help you make friends and become part of the UWindsor community. First-year students coming straight from high school are guaranteed a place if you get your deposit in on time. Want a single room? We have them. Want to share with a friend? No problem. If you’re taking engineering, nursing or science, we can even house you in “learning communities” with other students from your program. A meal plan is mandatory.

Where will I eat?

Eating on campus couldn’t be more convenient and satisfying. The student centre food court is jam-packed with eateries, and there are more scattered throughout campus. Your options are diverse — think shawarma, smoothies, sushi or subs; pasta, pizza or pulled pork lasagna. You’ll find popular franchises, gourmet coffee shops and local favourites.

You can use your meal plan everywhere on campus, including vending machines. It’s also accepted at our local restaurant partners: Green Bean, Harvey’s®, Mare Nostrum Mediterranean restaurant and bar, New Jade Chinese Cuisine, and Pizza Pizza®.
