Top Reasons why YOU should snag a spot in Rez next year!

In no particular order here are a few reasons why we think you should consider applying to live in residence during your first year at Ryerson!

1)  It's fun!
There's always something going on at Rye Rez. And the best part is…you don't have to wait to be invited! Regularly organized programs are a significant part of the residence experience.  #RezOWeek2013 is only the beginning!

2)  The connections
Living on campus gets you closer to the action. You'll find not only find it easier to participate in groups and clubs, but also find it easier to connect with academic support and resources. And you'll make stronger personal connections simply because you see many of these people all day, every day. We like to think that the relationships formed in residence are especially valuable.  It is very likely that you’ll be able to count on those connections for support for many years to come!
3)  Safety and security
Living on campus gives you the benefits of being out on your own with the assurance of safety.  Staff at the Residence Service Desks monitor building access 24/7 in order to ensure our residence buildings are as safe as can be.

4)  Support for your education

There are countless opportunities for academic support. At Rye Rez we have live in student-staff who are there to help you succeed!  Academic Links (ALs) are here to help answer any questions you may have about your classes, assignments, and academically-centered resources on campus.

5)  Community

One of our main priorities at Ryerson Student Housing Services is to ensure that you feel that you’re a part of the residence community from the moment that you move in.  As soon as you arrive on August 25th you will begin meeting a ton of new people.  Before you know it, Rye Rez will become your “home away from home”. 

6)  Convenience. 
This one is obvious!  The hassle of commuting is non-existent when living in residence.  You are always connected to campus 24/7.  Take advantage of this opportunity: Visit your professors when they are in their office hours.  Take a nap in that hour break between classes.  Forget packing a lunch, as long as you have your One Card on you food is nearby wherever you are on campus!

Below is a link to our online application!  Be sure to get yours in by June 7th in order to be consider for our first round of admissions!

See you soon!
Only 92 days!
