Living in Residence

Although StFX has the very best residential and academic facilities located within Canada's most beautiful campus, truth be told, it's the emotional connections you make with fellow housemates that make the StFX experience so unique and special. 

Immersed in a vibrant community, you will live together, learn together, laugh together, share challenges and successes together. You will support one another. From day one, you will wear your house colours with pride and immediately identify yourself as a member of the family

It means finding beauty and inspiration in your surroundings, where New England-style architecture meets state-of-the art classrooms and facilities. It also means experiencing the independence of living on your own within a safe and comfortable environment. You’ll have many residence options to choose from and student staff in every building to help with any questions or issues you may have.


Residence staff will work hard to ensure your transition to StFX is a successful one. Trained residence life coordinators, house directors, and residence assistants will be there to foster a culture of respect and help you with any challenge you may have. And the fact that they have one in each residence means there is always someone close by to lend a hand.
