Housing and Transportation


Where you live and how you get to your classes are important to your university life. Lakehead gives you information to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or seek housing off campus. If you live off campus, you’ll also get information on public transportation options and availability of parking services to help you with your commute. More information on pertinent student resources can be found in the ACSS Aboriginal Student Handbook [PDF].

On Campus

Lakehead offers 3 residence styles: Residence halls with separate rooms, apartments and townhouses. There are some residences available to upper-year students only, which could allow you to live in residence after your first year.

Off Campus

You can find information about living near campus through Lakehead’s Off-Campus Housing Office. This non-profit organization helps you connect with landlords and roommates. It also provides you information on costs and rental listings.

Meal Plans

Whether you live in residence or off campus, finding a place to eat is made easier with Lakehead’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 – it is where you will find a community. With a senior student mentor to guide you, you will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that builds on what you’re learning inside the classroom while getting to know students from different programs.
