Residence Dons

St John's Residence is part of a larger community on campus called St John's College. This College, affiliated with the Anglican Church of Canada, is a founding member College of the University. College members receive their degrees from the University of Manitoba. Students who live in residence become members of the College for a fee yearly $10 per academic term and receive all the benefits of membership.


At just 100 students, our community-oriented residence embodies a unique blend of social life and academic commitment, with residents from across Canada and around the world.

We are first and foremost an academic community. To support you, we have designed a schedule of study hours to ensure an atmosphere that allows for adequate study and sleep. 

Our single occupancy, fully furnished rooms include in-room wired internet and UManitoba wireless access. Also included in our residence fees is a full meal plan of 19 meals per week, plus snack on Sunday night and exam periods; trained student staff on-call every night; and light housekeeping services including cleaning, vacuuming, dusting, and garbage removal.

Our residence also features two lounges with televisions; a large residence study room; games room with both a pool table and foosball table.

While meals are included in the residence fees, students may wish to have their own meals and snacks, in which case they'll want to use The Buttery, a semi equipped student kitchen with fridge, microwave, kettle, and toaster.

And of course we can't forget the necessity of clean clothes! Our laundry room has state of the art washers and dryers. To use the laundry facilities, you'll need a special card you will get when you check in. No quarters here!

All residents have access to College facilities and services: St John's Library, Daily Bread Café Restaurant, computer lab, Chapel and Chaplaincy services, student lounges, lockers, storage room for residents; and College classrooms are available for late night study sessions
