CMU has three residence buildings with dormitory and apartment style options. Prospective students are encouraged to live as part of the community because living together helps integrate academic, personal, social and spiritual development. Living on campus is also a lot of fun. Residences include dorm rooms for double or single occupancy and self contained apartments varying in size from studio suites to three-bedroom apartments. A cafeteria serves all dormitory students as well as others who choose to purchase meals. It provides three meals per day, plus a snack every night @ 9:00 PM. Meals are served on a six week rotation in order to provide students with a great variety of meals over the semester.

Off Campus Housing

Every off-campus student is assigned to a Commuter Assistant. This is to ensure that every student has a student council resource person to aid with questions about campus, events, and student life.

Incoming Students

There is an orientation in September for new students to learn about the campus and various service offered. There are ample activities related to the chapel on campus. The Fall Retreat is also a popular activity for all students.


Students can participate in a wide range of athletic and recreational activities both competitive and non-competitive. Recreational facilities on campus include a gymnasium, fitness room, games room, outdoor ice rink, soccer field and softball field. Bike paths and cross-country ski trails run through Assiniboine Forest located on the west side of the campus. The sports program provides opportunity for men's and women's participation in cross-country running, golf, soccer, indoor soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey, badminton, table tennis and curling. One-day tournaments are organized for several of these sports. Intercollegiate sports competitions occur within the Manitoba College Athletic Conference (MCAC), which includes seven other colleges in Manitoba.


The community meets daily at chapel for the purpose of nurturing, developing, and expressing our Christian identity. These meeting times serve as a focal point for community life, and the gatherings vary in form: worship, exploration of issues in forums, student recitals, prayer times and speakers. All students and staff are encouraged to attend. These gatherings provide many opportunities for student participation and leadership.
