Villa Maria is named for the University's patroness, the Virgin Mary, and opened in 1957 as the first women's residence hall on campus. Its location on the far northwestern reaches of campus was chosen deliberately because the provincial superior at the time of its construction mandated that the hall be built as far from the men's dormitory (Christie) as possible. The hall became a men's residence in the 1980s and today houses more than 200 residents in 89 rooms. The building has a central lounge with a big screen television, a basketball court behind the building, and a chapel. It has a computer lab, a game room, and two study rooms.
What is the average size of a Villa Maria Hall room?
Villa Maria Hall is one of our older residence halls and thus does not have uniform room sizes throughout the building. The approximate size of a double room is 185 square feet, though individual rooms may be larger or smaller than this, and some are designated as extendable, meaning they can hold two or three students. Standard triple rooms are approximately 320 square feet, and there is one room designated as a quad (four students) that is approximately 364 square feet.
How is a double room in Villa Maria Hall laid out?
Beds can stand alone and are movable; wardrobes are built in. Most desks are movable; however, there are some that are built in. Rooms have tile flooring (uncarpeted).
