Upper Year Experience

Upper year students at an event.

We know that as an upper-year student, you’re looking for a more independent residence experience. We provide a safe, supportive, and convenient living environment so you can continue to build on your academic, professional, and personal skills. Exclusive upper-year programming is available to help you live independently, refine your job search process, and build your network through upper-year and beyond.  

Programming for Upper-Year Students 

Enhance your independent living skills with learning experiences specifically tailored with your experience in mind. Practice for your next job interview, connect with young alumni, or learn to prep the perfect grab-n-go breakfast – all from the comfort of your residence community. 

Dons for Upper-Year Students 

Your Don will help you to navigate the residence and upper-year experience. Dons are upper-year students, just like you! You’ll meet with them individually at the start of term so they can get to know how to best support you. Build your network within residence by attending your Don’s Community Meetings and social events to get to know the students around you. 

Throughout the year, your Residence Life Don will be sharing useful resources and knowledge from across campus that will help you be better prepared for any challenges ahead. Be sure to check this page often for new resources and updates as we introduce them throughout the year!
