Important Notice Regarding CUE Residence: Fall 2020 Closure

Thank you very much for your interest in CUE’s Residence Life program.

As you know, the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and universities across Alberta, Canada, and beyond are evaluating the best strategies for moving forward to protect their students. Our top priority has always been you, our students. CUE has decided that we will not be opening our residence halls for the Fall 2020 semester.

As of now, a majority of CUE’s classes in the Fall will be delivered exclusively online. Some exceptions are planned to be made for labs that require in-person attendance with physical distancing measures in place. Most students will not require living in Edmonton to be successful in their classes in the Fall.

That being said, we are prepared to provide support for students to navigate locating housing in Edmonton as needed. You can access our Off-Campus Housing website by clicking the button below.

We know that this is disappointing and we share in your disappointment. Once the global crisis has passed and we rejoin each other on campus, it will be an honour to invite you back into our residence communities.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with your questions or concerns. As a reminder, 1-1 sessions with a member of our Housing team can also be booked at the bottom of this page.

Sincerely,
Residence Life

Experience Residence Life!

We believe in the power of the residence life experience and our students do too! Please take your time exploring our newly renovated website and see why thousands of students have called Concordia University of Edmonton home!

Concordia University of Edmonton works with our residents to build dynamic communities that inspire learning, community building, and development! You will walk into Residence Life starting a new journey and leave with lifelong friendships, academic success, and a sense of belonging. Welcome to Residence Life!

Don’t just take our word for it, though! Research in higher education shows that students who live in residence often have a higher GPA and significantly higher rate of returning to studies in the next year!

Benefits of the Residence Life Experience

  1. Proximity When you live in residence, you are steps away from classes, your faculty, student support services, catered meals, and your friends! The Residence Life Experience is a convenient experience.
  2. Educational AND Exciting Programming There is always something happening for you to enjoy in residence. The Resident Advisors work together and with various campus experts to bring you the highest quality of community building and learning fun! The Residence Life Experience is a community learning experience.
  3. Support Systems Moving away from home and starting at university can be a stressful experience! We have a variety of highly skilled, well-trained staff across campus who work together to provide a collaborative support system to all of our residents! These committed staff include a Residence Life Coordinator, a team of Resident Advisors, and 24/7 on-site Security. The Residence Life Experience is a successful experience.
