Housing and Transportation


Where you live and how you get to your classes are important to your university life. Algoma gives you information to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or seek housing off campus. If you live off campus, you will also get information on public transportation options and availability of parking services to help you with your commute.

On Campus

If you live in residence at Algoma, you can choose from 2 options: Traditional-style residences with a bathroom shared between you and your roommate, or townhouse-style accommodations that can fit up to 5 roommates and come with a fully furnished kitchen and common area. If you want to live on campus, be sure to apply for residence online after you receive your offer of admission from Algoma.

Meal Plans

Whether you live in residence or off campus, finding a place to eat is made easier with Algoma’s meal plans, which give you access to both on- and off-campus vendors.

Residence Life

Residence life is about more than where you live. Here is where you will find a welcoming community of support that is led by a senior student mentor to guide you through your first year. You will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that builds on what you’re learning inside the classroom while meeting other first-year students.

Public Transportation
