Welcome to the North Village
We are both so excited to welcome you to the North Village! We’re a diverse, inclusive and vibrant community – a home from home where you can relax, make new friends, try new things and feel supported to achieve your academic and personal goals.
We are looking forward to getting to know you during the year. You can find us in the Student Support Centre and also out and about in residences. If you see us do come and say hi. Here’s to a great year!
