On Campus Housing

The College maintains residence facilities at the Bay St. George, Burin, and Happy Valley - Goose Bay campuses. Students wishing to apply for residence should apply directly to the Residence Office of the appropriate campus. Residence space is limited and therefore the College cannot guarantee a room to everyone who applies. All applications are processed on a first come, first served basis only after students have been confirmed in a program at the College. The College maintains at all campuses a list of boarding accommodations available at the Student Services Offices.
