University residences, named after Ontario counties in the Ottawa Valley — Glengarry, Grenville, Lanark, Leeds, Prescott, Renfrew, Russell, Stormont and Dundas — provide homes to over 2,600 students in double and single rooms.

Senior residence fellows offer advice and counsel and help new students make a successful transition to university life.

The University Commons is the hub of residence life. Most students in residence meet here for their meals. The building also contains Fenn Lounge, offices, a convenience store, an arcade, pub and information desk.
