Bernardine Hall

Bernardine Hall—or "Bernie" as residents call it—is the perfect place for students to make the transition from high school to university. It’s a great place to meet people, make new friends, and balance academic and social life. Bernardine’s traditional style of residence living offers fun activities while allowing you to stay focused on academic success. It’s always easy to find someone to hang out with or provide a little extra help with your assignment. In Bernardine we focus on your personal growth and development as you embark on your university career.

All students living in Bernardine are on a five- or seven-day unlimited meal plan and eat at the Wanda Wyatt Dining Hall. It’s easy and convenient: no shopping or meal prep, and no dishes to do! The dining hall is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Monday to Friday; 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday), and is a great place to spend time getting to know other students, and study.
