Gaspé's Campus

Housing

The campus is located in downtown Gaspé, close to all services. You have two choices when it comes to housing on the Gaspé campus: live within walking distance of the campus in the student residence dedicated to our community, or choose to live in an off-campus housing of your choice.

On-Campus Housing

The Gaspé campus residence is the ideal place to stay during your studies. Located on the campus, it is just a few meters from the main building, which includes the library, the computer labs, and the school store. The sports pavilion is also just a few steps away from the student residence.

Inside the residence, you will have access to a laundry service ($), a personal post office box, a study room, a room to store bicycles and outdoor equipment, and a recreation room (home theater, pool table, etc.). The residence can accommodate up to 255 people and offers two types of accommodation: apartments or pavilion rooms.
