Big News: At Algoma U You Get a Single Room!


Algoma University guarantees a private residence room to all first-year students who apply directly from high school. A single room provides students with the best learning and study environment.  But rest assured, having a single room doesn’t mean you’ll be alone – you’ll share a bathroom with a dorm mate, and there are countless opportunities to get involved or hang out with fellow residents.


Plus, living in residence gives you the full student experience. You’ll have more opportunities to make friends and get involved in activities and events around the campus. Campus life is always great, but it’s even better when the campus is your home. When you’re only a two minute walk from everything on campus – the cafeteria, the bookstore, the Speak Easy, our athletics complex, and all of our classroom facilities – you’ll quickly realize, there’s never a dull moment at Algoma U! And if you can’t find what you’re looking for on campus, there’s a bus stop right outside your door that can take you anywhere you need to go in Sault Ste. Marie.


All of our residence options at Algoma U are wheelchair accessible and provide a secure and safe living environment, 24 hours a day. With evening and overnight security staff, trained Residence Advisors, a secure-access dorm building, and 24-hour video surveillance, you’ll never need to worry about your safety or security.
