The Residence Life Office is responsible for the educational and social aspects of life in Memorial University’s residences. Home to approximately 2000 students, Paton College, Macpherson College and Burton’s Pond apartments are more than just a convenient place for our students to live; they are a dynamic and diverse community wherein our students are given the opportunity to thrive and develop inside and outside of the classroom. Paton College was rebuilt and renovated in 2015 and primarily offers a home for students who are in their first year of studies or away from home for the first time along with returning students. Paton College also offers Living Learning Communities: areas within the residence where students with similar interests or academic programs live together on the same floor or area in residence. Opened in 2014, Macpherson College has two wings, each home to approximately 250 students, commonly balanced of both first-year and returning independent students in their second year and beyond. Rooms are suite-style with private bedrooms and semi-private washrooms. Burton’s Pond offers apartment-style living to senior students, graduate students and families within an independent living community.
