Residence Donship Applications

The SMC Residence is organized to help students pursue their degrees in a friendly, supportive, and inclusive environment.  St. Mike’s believes that residence is much more than simply a place to live – it is a time-honored tradition that provides students with an educational experience that cannot be taught in the classroom. Living in a diverse community with people from every region of the world is an enriching experience and one that helps prepare students for success in an increasingly interconnected world.  The SMC Residence is comprised of five different buildings that provide accommodation to approximately 550 students within sixteen different ‘houses’. These houses accommodate between fifteen and fifty students studying in a variety of academic programs. St. Mike’s welcomes all students into co-ed communities as well as male-identifying and female-identifying communities. 

We are hiring 14 dons to support our vibrant community.

If you enjoy building community, mentorship, and supporting the lived experiences of your peers and new residents, then we encourage you to review the role and see if it’s the right fit for you.
