LIVING AT CAREY
As a student at Carey, you will take part in an experience unlike any other on campus.
Here you will find a vibrant group of 40 undergraduate students living in a community of spiritual growth and discipleship, featuring resources and weekly gatherings to foster friendship between you and your fellow students.
CAREY Centre provides you with a personal dorm room that is spacious and comfortable. It also features several common lounges for studying and hanging out. Included with your residence package is a full meal plan consisting of 3 freshly-prepared meals per day, seven days per week. CAREY Centre is conveniently located near the Nest, bus loop, beach, and forest trails.
Our 40 dorm rooms are furnished with either a queen-sized or twin-sized bed (4 twins available).
All beds have foam-encased pocket-coil mattresses manufactured locally using local materials.
All rooms are single occupancy, complete with a queen / single bed, desk, chair, desk lamp, dresser, floor lamp, closet, and private washroom.
There is a telephone landline in each room, which students can use to make free local and toll free calls.
There is also WiFi access throughout the building. Each room is supplied with an ethernet cable to plug in directly or to set up one’s own wireless router.
