On Campus Housing

Royal Roads University offers convenient on-campus housing for students while on short-term residency. Choose from a variety of private single and double rooms or dormitory-style suites with shared washrooms. Located in the heart of the Colwood campus, accommodations are located in the Millward and Nixon buildings. Residence lounges include fridges, microwaves, coffee makers, toasters, kettles and cutlery. The nearby Habitat Café offers a variety of meals for purchase seven days a week. Graduate residence costs vary according to the length of residency. Rates are subject to change.

Off Campus Housing

Royal Roads University does not offer long-term on-campus accommodations for students. If your program is delivered full-time on campus, you will need to find off campus housing for the duration of your studies. To support your transition to Victoria, you may request Temporary Campus Accommodations for a stay of up to two weeks. Colwood and Langford are the closest municipalities to Royal Roads and will be the most convenient areas to live while you study. We recommend that you search for accommodation close to bus routes numbered 39, 50, 51, or 52 which stop on or close to campus.

Incoming Students

The LaunchPad is your online orientation to RRU. The LaunchPad is located in Moodle and contains information and videos about what it’s like to be an RRU student and the skills and tools you need to succeed in your program. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other new students through the LaunchPad’s Student Café. You will have access to The LaunchPad as soon as your student account is activated. Once you have completed the LaunchPad, you are also invited to participate in a real-time orientation Q&A with our Orientation Assistants and other new students. Visit the LaunchPad Live schedule to find out when the next session is!
