Parents & Supporters


Thank you for visiting the Residence Services website.

The Residence Services team at Mount Royal is committed to providing an safe and enjoyable environment that will help your student develop personally, socially and academically.

Our goal is to foster a supportive living and learning community so students enjoy a successful transition to post-secondary studies as well as a great Residence experience. As a member of the Residence community, your student will make lifelong friendships and will have the opportunity to become part of a vibrant campus community. They will also see firsthand that living in Residence has a positive impact on studies and grades.

We hope you'll have the opportunity to visit your student in Residence so you can also see what makes living in Residence a truly memorable and rewarding experience.

Living in Residence has a positive impact

A recent research project by five Canadian universities shows that first year students who live in Residence have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate than students who live off-campus. This holds true for Mount Royal!

Testimonials from parents and supporters like you

I helped my son move into Residence and I wanted thank you for doing such a good job helping him get settled.
I was greeted by six lovely, I repeat lovely, girls from the volleyball team. They helped us move my son's stuff into his place and were so pleasant and helpful I was thrilled.
The process was so fast with their help that I could quickly move out of the way to allow other people to move in.
The girls talked about volleyball and the school and were so polite and welcoming, it made the whole experience less stressful.
The security staff were clear on their directions and made the process simple to follow and efficient.
