The AUD Student Housing Division provides residential students with a safe and well-maintained living/learning environment that supports individual progress and provides quality services and programming.
We maintain four residential, non-smoking student buildings, two for men, two for women, accommodating a total of 520 residents, across a collection of six-storey and four-storey halls.
Rooms are double occupancy and equipped with a private bathroom and WiFi, with each hall featuring a laundry room, study area, TV lounge, and fully equipped kitchen and dining room.
Located in the northwest corner of the AUD campus, the halls are a 2-5 minute walk to the academic buildings, library, computer labs, cafeteria, small grocery shop and the sports facilities that include basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, as well as a soccer field and a swimming pool.
