Live and Learn in French at the University of Regina!

Living in French at the University of Regina is now possible thanks to the new Quartier francophone! Although you can live in any of the many residences on campus, La Cité universitaire francophone, in partnership with Residences Services, offers Francophone and French-speaking students the opportunity to join one of its eight Living-Learning Communities (LLC), le Quartier francophone, located on the 7th floor of La Résidence in the Language Institute Building.

Students of all backgrounds can live and learn in French right here on campus. Social activities will include movie nights and informal dialogue centered on Francophone topics. This LLC will spark conversations and foster relationships between French speakers, while showcasing all aspects of Francophone culture. All French-speaking students are eligible to join this exciting community!

La Résidence

La Résidence is a close-knit community with a French flair. This cozy residence is made up of 50 dorm-style rooms each equipped with its own private washroom.

Each room contains: Twin size bed, wardrobe closet, garbage can, small fridge, phone (local calls only, unless a calling card is used), high speed internet connection, shower curtain, desk chair, lamp, window coverings, and shelves. Large Single Rooms in La Résidence may have two of each item (not a guarantee). There is a vacuum cleaner on each floor for resident use. La Résidence dorm rooms are fully-furnished, but you will need the items listed in our What to bring page as well.

 

 

At La Résidence rooms are dorm-style therefore they do not have cooking facilities. Residents must purchase a mandatory Meal Plan in order to live here during the Fall & Winter semesters.Veuillez noter: Il n’est pas possible de faire la cuisine dans la résidence; vous devez vous procurer un plan repas au cours des sessions d’automne et d’hiver. Veuillez consulter la page web des services de restauration (Food Services) pour voir en quoi consistent les plans repas.  

Please check out the University of Regina’s Food Services webpage and take a look at some of the great eats available on campus.

What is a Living-Learning Community?

A Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a floor, or cluster of rooms, where students with a common faculty or shared interest live and learn together.  In addition to the regular academic, social and recreational programming offered to UR Residents, themed programming and extra study/project spaces are available to LLC students to  enhance their out of class learning experience.

At the University of Regina, we understand that real learning occurs not only in the classroom, but in the home as well.  This year, we are offering first-year students the exciting opportunity to be a part of one of four Living-Learning Communities! These communities are floors, or clusters of rooms where students with similar interests, academic goals, and personal values live together. 

The primary purpose of each LLC is to provide a forum for themed programming, as well as a variety of learning resources and activities specific to each community’s area of interest.  LLCs offer students the opportunity to create more meaningful connections to the campus community, form lasting friendships, and expand their personal and academic horizons.  LLCs are sure to help students make the most of their first-year University experience!  

Although specific offerings will vary by community, students in LLCs will benefit from enhanced programming, study groups, tutoring, extra project spaces, and more!

Research shows that students living in LLCs:

  • Experience greater satisfaction with their overall University experience
  • Have higher GPAs
  • Are more likely to complete their degree
