Step into Granville Hall, a housing option designed with the needs of international students in mind. We offer single and double occupancy rooms in the heart of downtown Halifax for students who seek high quality independent living.
A live-in Residence Coordinator provides support and assists with language practice and cultural integration. Our spacious design allows students to relax, study or spend time with friends. Each floor is equipped with several washrooms, common areas and a kitchenette, ensuring comfort, privacy and a social environment.
House keeping services keep all common areas clean and tidy for everyone’s enjoyment. We clean each bedroom and provide a fresh set of clean sheets once a week.
You can use one of the free computers, enjoy high-speed internet, watch a movie on premium HD channels, or join your residence mates on one of many activities organized by our friendly residence staff.
Avoid the inconvenience of grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning. Enjoy hassle-free meals any time, any where. Students who purchase a meal plan receive a meal card that can be used in several participating restaurants and coffee shops adjacent to Granville Hall.
Residence Coordinators live in the residence and are available for students 24/7. We maintain a safe, secure location with 24-hour video cameras throughout the facility. Key cards are required to access the residence and non-residents are not allowed on site without being accompanied by a resident.
Each student receives an orientation on their first day in residence. The Residence Coordinator provides new students with a tour of the building and informs them about safety practices and residence services. The Residence Agreement will be explained and the student’s rights and responsibilities will be clarified. Students are encouraged to observe the residence’s rules to have an enjoyable, safe and respectful shared living environment.
Student concerns or issues will never go unheard. Students can talk to the Residence Coordinator confidentially at any time. We maintain a positive, respectful and safe environment. Our staff are trained in conflict resolution and effectively address any issues that may arise between students.
