Thank you for choosing or considering to live in residence at Acadia. The residence life experience is designed to support you through your academic career as you learn about yourself and about living in a community with others. This is a valuable part of your educational experience, and our staff work hard to maintain an environment that fosters social inclusiveness, responsibility, self-governance and accountability, academic achievement, community development, and personal fulfillment.
Get involved and make positive contributions to your residential community. Learn to appreciate differences and celebrate the diversity that is such a valuable component of the community at Acadia. Introduce yourself to your neighbours in residence and get to know your Resident Assistant. RAs and SRAs are trained as resource persons to help you to be successful and to assist you with questions and concerns.
Much of the learning that happens at university takes place
outside of the classroom, and residence life is a large part of
that. Your stay in residence will be one of the most rewarding
aspects of your time at Acadia.
