Residence Tours + Move In Information

St Michaels Campus - The image depicts a tree lined street with sun coming through the canopy of trees.

The best way to see our campus is to come down for a tour. Our friendly guides will provide you with a brief history of our College and then take you into Elmsley Hall residence building, the dining hall, our student center and the Kelly Café. Tours begin just outside the Registrar’s Office in Brennan Hall and last about 45 minutes. If you need directions to Brennan Hall, simply arrive at 81 St. Mary Street and our Porter’s Desk will point you in the right direction.

Covid Update: At this time, our campus tours are suspended until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
