Living on campus makes it easier to be involved with the larger campus community. Our RAs host weekly events and we also encourage attendance at campus-wide events, whether they are hosted by the students’ association, Kodiaks Athletics or other Student Affairs departments.

These opportunities allow you to take advantage of all that the college has to offer. Our Residence life team is actively engaged in promoting the well-being of all residents and ensure your experience while living in the residence neighbourhood is a positive one.

Roommate Agreements

Predict, prevent, and reduce roommate conflict with a roommate agreement!

While having roommates can be a wonderful opportunity to make friends and find study buddies, it can present some tough challenges. It's important to remember that interpersonal conflicts are inevitable but left unaddressed, can spill over into other aspects of your life such as mental wellness and academic performance.

The Residence Office has designed a convenient online Roommate Agreement to proactively help you and your roommates establish guidelines, avoid future disagreement, and provide a blueprint for navigating conflict, should it arise. The agreement will be sent through your Lethbridge College email address and linked on the Residence Self Service portal.
