CapU Residence located at 2420 Dollarton Highway provides students with the option of living in one of three residence buildings. Named for the local mountains, Grouse Hall, Cypress Hall, and Seymour Hall, include housing and amenities for approximately 250 in shared and single accommodation, depending on demand.
The largest of our three residence buildings, Grouse Hall includes two wings and is home to our Student Housing Services front desk and offices. Grouse Hall also houses our single gender and quiet/study-intensive communities. Each of Grouse Hall's three floors include common spaces for studying and social activities, as well as access to laundry (on the first and second floor), common washrooms and showers.
Cypress Hall and Seymour Hall, are the perfect mirror image of one another with each housing about 60 residents. Each of Cypress and Seymour's three floors include common spaces for studying and social activities as well as access to laundry (on the first and second floor), common washrooms and showers.
CapU Residence provides a number of room options including double occupancy, single occupancy and apartment style (limited availability).
Each room (excluding apartment style) include the following:
*Some items shown in photos are not included. Please check our website for information prior to move-in.
Most of the rooms in CapU Residence are double occupancy. In these rooms students share with another student with whom they have been matched based on preferences and lifestyle.
Students living in double rooms will be assigned to a specific side of the room where the closet, bed and desk are for their use exclusively. Students living in double rooms will be asked to complete Roommate Agreements at the start of the year with the assistance of their Residence Advisor. We strongly recommend that all students living in double rooms contact their roommate before arrival to arrange any shared items (as needed).
Priority for single occupancy rooms is given to students with a demonstrated need. Remaining single rooms will be assigned randomly to those who have applied for one.
Single rooms are provided in one of two configurations:
Regardless of the room configuration, students in single rooms will not share with a roommate and will be allowed to use both sides of their room. (Note: single room students living in a double room configuration may use the second bed for guests a maximum of 7 nights per semester (as per the guest policy).
Three bachelor apartments are available to students at an additional cost. Bachelor apartments include a single bed, full private washroom and kitchenette. Bachelor apartments are prioritized for students with a demonstrated need; remaining apartments may be assigned randomly to those who have applied for one.
