South Residence gets a facelift

Guelph's largest residence community - South Residence - is looking different these days.   As part of our ongoing commitment to renewal of our residences, Student Housing Services embarked on a multi-phase capital investment in our South Residence buildings (Mountain, Prairie and Mountain Halls) several years ago.  Both the interior and exterior of this unique Modern architectural complex have undergone significant upgrading over the past few years, including new bathroom fixtures, tiling, lighting and new furniture!  This summer, the final phase of exterior cladding of the building is happening.  We are excited to welcome our students back in the fall with a renewed look for one of Guelph's signature buildings.
