Residence rooms

St. Paul's has a variety of rooms to fit your personality and needs. Choose from our brand-new 'Super Single' rooms with private washrooms, our traditional single rooms, or our double rooms with privacy barriers.

Regardless of configuration, all our rooms have individual temperature control (heating and air conditioning). A full meal plan is also included with your room.

We have 43 single rooms on one floor in our West Wing. Like all  floors on the West Wing, these rooms have access to separate male and female shared washrooms on the floor.

Each bathroom has several private shower stalls, sinks and toilet stalls. Students find that with everyone's varied schedules, they rarely need to wait for access to bathroom facilities.

Privacy Double

Image of a privacy double roomSt. Paul's double rooms are unique, giving you the fun and friendship of a roommate, but in a comfortable way. These large rooms have a privacy barrier that separates the sleeping area from the studying area of the room. This lets you sleep while your roommate stays up late to do work. There's plenty of storage room, too.

There are 74 double rooms (148 beds) available. They are situated on both the West and East Wings. The rooms are single gender, but the floors can be double-gender or single-gender, depending on the student configuration each year.

Each floor has its own bathrooms. The East Wing has newly renovated washrooms with individual private stalls containing a shower, sink, and toilet, as well as a common area with a sink and counter space.

On the West Wing, floors have newly renovated female and male bathrooms, located close to the rooms.

Common areas

While your dorm room is important, you’ll also be spending lots of time in the common areas of St. Paul's.

The Watson's Student Centre is our dining and community area. A games room, television lounge and fireplace make this the place to hang out, and a large new multipurpose area is also available to students.
