On-Campus Housing

At Durham College, we offer the best of both worlds when it comes to residence – all the comforts of home in a unique campus community experience.

Our residences offer convenience, great friendships and the chance to connect with all that campus life has to offer. The Simcoe Village and South Village residences offer safe, clean, and comfortable living accommodations for 1,360 students. First-year students are guaranteed a spot in residence if they meet the deadlines for accepting Durham College’s offer of admission and applying to residence. Students enrolled in January-start programs may apply to residence and will be approved based on room availability.

Our residences offer a number of different room options.
