Students will move-in the Sunday before their classes and move-out the following Saturday. Students living in residence for more than one week will remain in the same room.

Students will be living in dormitory styled rooms, and will share the room with another Helix student (in same-gender rooms). Students are supervised by residence program staff. This offers students a genuine university academic and residence experience.


The Residence Program includes accommodation from Sunday (move-in) to Saturday (move-out),  daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, evening and overnight supervision, and weekly field trips.

  • Toronto Blue Jays Game
  • Royal Ontario Museum
  • Niagara Falls
  • CN Tower & Ripley's Aquarium
  • Wonderland
  • Ontario Science Centre
