We are excited to present you information regarding the new student residence. As we are in the process of developing our plans for this residence, there might be questions that will still be unanswered. Note that as more details develop, we will share these with you!

Our previous student residence, Bergen Hall, was destroyed in a fire on June 1, 2017. Because we are a residential campus, we need to replace the lost spaces and plan for an increase in student growth.
The new building design will promote a fun and thriving Christ-centered student learning community, with a bright, warm and inviting home-like atmosphere. We describe and label this residence as a ‘Living and Learning Centre’ because we believe that learning also happens outside the classroom and this building was intentionally designed for that purpose. The mission of Providence is that we become people of knowledge and character who lead and serve others. Our vision is that our mission is lived out inside this new student ‘home’ as the spiritual, academic and community life of students is brought together.
The Bergen Hall foundation was removed in March 2018 to make space for the new residence foundation. Digging for the new foundation began in November 2018 and the building is on track to be completed in the winter of 2019/2020.
