Residence

Virtual Tour

Your home away from home

Living in residence is a big part of the university experience, and will make up so many of the memories you create at CBU. Our residences is where students from all over the world come together and discover what it really means to be a Cape Bretoner. From the moment you arrive in your residence, you’re going to feel like you’ve found your home away from home.

We believe that your residence experience should be as enriching and fun as possible. Our residence buildings are always buzzing with activity, and with over 70 on-campus societies, there is lots to do!

Cape Breton University offers three unique residence living options so you can choose the best arrangement for you. From the traditional single dorm room, to an apartment style set-up with roommates, we think you’re really going to love life on campus!
