The campus of Western University is located in London, a thriving Ontario centre of more than 352,000 that combines the facilities of big-city living with the comforts of a small-town community. The campus itself offers numerous conveniences right within its gates. From any of the residences, you're only a short walk to a bank, convenience stores, medical clinic, pharmacy, gyms, a pool and other recreational facilities, a bookstore, restaurants, a post office, films, live theatre, two art galleries, and a wide variety of student services.
We offer three styles of residence at Western:
Our traditional-style residences (Medway-Sydenham Hall and Saugeen-Maitland Hall and Delaware Hall) offer single and double rooms with shared common washrooms on each floor. Traditional-style residences enable you to easily get acquainted and develop a strong sense of belonging with your floor community. For many students, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to room with a similar-minded student, creating bonds that last a lifetime!
Our suite-style residences (Alumni House, Elgin Hall, Essex Hall, London Hall) offer single rooms with shared cooking facilities, semi-private washrooms, and a common living area. Suite-style residences are geared toward more independent living, where you will look after more of your own domestic responsibilities, including the option to cook some of your own meals. Upper year students are welcome in all of our buildings, but Alumni House and London Hall are exclusively upper year buildings.
Our hybrid-style residences (Perth Hall and Ontario Hall) offer the privacy one experiences in a suite-style residence with its semi-private washrooms, combined with mostly double rooms that assist with the strong sense of belonging one feels in a traditional-style residence.
