Our campus has residence buildings, apartments, mobile homes and on-campus houses available to students. We have five permanent residence halls (Eichhorst, Kindred, Sweet, Pearce and Cundy) and a temporary housing unit, most of which are set up for double occupancy. Each dorm has a sublounge for students to relax, study or socialize. Our non-residence housing options, located about 10-20 minutes walking distance from the Hanna Centre, offer a more private setting for mature, married or international students or those with families.
Currently our largest permanent residence on campus, Eichhorst is split up into four wings and has two floors for a maximum of 60 living spaces. Rooms are furnished with twin captain beds, two closets and three book shelves for each person. A desk top runs the entire width of the room with desk drawers underneath. Bathrooms are shared between two bedrooms, each with separate toilet and shower stalls, double sinks and a storage closet.
Sweet, Kindred, Pearce and Cundy
These are all smaller residence halls, each containing 15 rooms on two floors for a maximum of 30 living spaces. Rooms are furnished with two loft beds, two desks, two desk chairs, and shelf space. Each room has one closet that is shared between roommates (approximately 4' wide and 2' deep) with one or two shelves depending on the room. Each floor shares a sub-lounge and bathrooms (which includes sinks, toilets, showers and storage space).
Residence programming (care groups, stress-reducing activities, etc.) provides the opportunity for both academic and personal growth with the help of student leaders and the Resident Directors
Our on-campus apartments are a short walk (10-20 minutes) from the main campus buildings. We presently offer one, two and three-bedroom accommodations, although availability is limited. Priority is given to international students, married couples, families, and mature students. Leases go from September 1 - April 30, however, alternative arrangements can be made if an earlier possession date is required.
There are seven mobile homes located in the Mobile Home Park on campus. These mobile homes are privately owned but the owners must adhere to Providence rules and regulations in order to continue renting the mobile home on Providence property. The mobile homes must be owner-occupied and the owners must be Providence staff or students. Buying or selling of the mobile home must be approved by the Student Services Coordinator.
Current rental rates are subject to change on an annual basis.
There are 10-11 houses located on the Providence Campus. Each home is privately owned and may be rented out to students at the owner's discretion.
There are opportunities to rent or buy houses, mobile homes, and apartments in the communities surrounding Providence. Students who choose to live off-campus will need to commute to Providence for classes. There is no public transportation to Providence and therefore you will need to purchase a vehicle or arrange carpooling. Off-campus housing options are also listed on the bulletin board outside the Student Development offices on campus.
