Living on campus is not only better for your education it’s more FUN than living anywhere else.
Living on campus has been a great experience for me. I love being so close to my classmates and friends. The activities that the Residents Assistants organize are a lot of fun and I think it’s great how tight the student community is here.
I was confident in my decision to live in CHOC after I saw the building in person for the first time. I was immediately impressed by how nice and high-quality the residence is. It's also great to live on campus so it takes no time at all to get to and from my classes (which means I can sleep in).
Both my parents and I wanted me to live on campus; since I was moving so far from home, it provided me the opportunities to make connections and get involved. Being surrounded by your peers, you get to know your classmates really well and you’re able to form deeper connections with the people around you.
I’m from Ontario so finding a place in Olds would have been a hassle. Living on campus is so much easier. Plus I won’t be living on KD and ramen (my mom is happy about that).
Being in the Animal Health Technologist program requires me to do surgery for extended periods of time. Living on campus means I don’t have to worry about getting home after dark.
I looked into living on campus because I had a friend who lived here, she loved the community, the friends she made, and the programs the RAs put on. Being in the townhouses, it’s really cool seeing people gather at a house and then be able to go out to the courtyard to hang out and play games.
I decided to live in CHOC because it would give me an opportunity to make friends and participate in school activities. The fact that all my friends live on campus means I get to visit them every day to eat breakfast, walk to class, or just catch up together.
Staying in campus housing, you learn what it’s like to live with other people, it helps you grow as a person, be more confident in who you are, and help you start to understand the world. I knew it’d be easier to adjust to the college life and atmosphere if I lived on campus.
I was surprised at how many opportunities there were for fun things to do. If I wasn’t living on campus, I probably wouldn’t have joined intramurals and ended up playing on teams with people on my floor. We had so much fun. I thought it was cool that residence has things like Anime nights and Dog therapy.
I decided to live on campus because I didn’t know anyone moving here - I wanted to make new friends. Living at CHOC is unreal, there’s always fun stuff going on in the lobby so you have tons of opportunities to connect with new people. I’m in the Brewmaster program and I’m close to my classmates, so we’re able to work on projects together and use the on-campus BrewLab.
My room is awesome, it’s spacious, quiet, and I have my own bathroom with a shower. I love living on campus because I’m so close to my classmates and friends, but sometimes I need to take a break and be alone to decompress. CHOC gives me the best of both worlds.
Living on campus is like living at your parents’ house, with freedom, but still the safety of living at home. A huge advantage of living on campus that I’ve noticed is being able to get to class even when there is bad weather or roads. The weather here is harsh and I don’t want to be outdoors any more than needed, so being right outside my classes minimizes that.
Don’t miss out on anything by living on campus. We host all kinds of fun events, including a residents appreciation event, group painting nights, anime nights, therapy dogs, crafts, games and contests. Whatever you love doing, you can do it while living on campus.Apply Now
