Social activities

From making friends to trying new things, your social coordinators are here to ensure that your time in residence is the best it can be!

In your first few weeks on campus, we make introductions easy with orientation events and activities where you’ll have lots of fun getting to know your fellow residents. View 2017 ResFest schedule [PDF 1.14MB]
