Maritime Hall

Maritime Hall is a part of South Residence, the largest residence complex in Canada. Designed by Australian architect John Andrews, each building has four wings, with each wing comprised of three six-storey vertical sections called houses. The small alcoves and numerous lounges foster tight-knit communities where students develop close friendships.
