Living in Rez is a great way to experience the University of Manitoba. There’s lots to do when you need a break. Plenty of quiet places to go when you have to study. And wherever you live, you’ll be steps away from all your classes (hit that snooze button one more time!). You can choose the residence that matches your interests and needs so you’ll have a lot in common with your neighbours. Fun stuff, serious times, and great friends. You’ll find it all living in Rez … plus you won’t ever have to worry about what’s for dinner!

Each residence has its own unique atmosphere based on the interests of the students who live there.
