Brock unveils new name for Housing Services to recognize changing market, community needs


Brock University has unveiled a new name for its Department of Residences: Housing Services. The change stems from work on the university’s Residence Master Plan and recognizes how on-campus housing options are changing to meet the community’s needs. Housing Services includes three portfolios: Residence, which offers fully furnished living with a mandatory meal plan to students in any year of study; Brock Suites, which offer independent living for upper-year and graduate students; and Short-term stay, which provides short-term overnight accommodation. “Our core service remains Residence; however, opportunity exists in growing the upper-year market and continuing to evaluate the need for new opportunities around third-party partnerships and monitoring the demand for graduate housing,” said Brock AVP, Ancillary Services Ed Wall.
