Answer: Hi! The university has 3 residences: Vanier, Loyola and Rice. Vanier and Loyola have no cooking facilities and they look more like dorms while the Rice residence has more of an apartment feel to it. Loyola Residence is the biggest residence building on campus with 22 floors and every floor has its own lounge. The lounge contains couches, tables & TVs for a small gatherings and floor events which can be used by any floor member. Also, Vanier has the same facilities and is the smallest residence building with same facilities as Loyola. The Loyola and Vanier residence are good for first year students as you will have floor mates & suite mates which gives you a chance to make new friends! Rice has cooking facilities and looks more like an apartment. There is one laundromat in the Loyola building and another laundromat is located in the middle of rice and vanier which is shared by both. There are three types of rooms on the residence: Single, Super-single and double. Single rooms have single bed size, super-single have a double size and the double rooms have two single beds. Generally the beds are comfortable and if you experience any discomfort the residence department can change the mattress too! You won't have to bring a memory foam but you should bring bed sheets and pillow since that is not provided to the students. The cafeteria follows a menu for breakfast, lunch & dinner which changes every once a while. There are all sorts of juices, sandwiches like egg salad & turkey, Pizza, fruits and salads, desserts like pie and cookies, nuggets, burgers, waffles etc. You can also get food from C store located on campus which has foods like salads, sandwiches, yogurts, chips etc. Other sources of food can be from the Tim Hortons and Just us Cafe which are also located on campus. They provide coffee, donuts, cookies, sandwiches etc. There are a lot of options for food on campus!
