Paton College tends to be best suited to students who are in their first or second year of studies or are living away from home for the first time.
On-campus accommodations in Burton's Pond Apartments and Paton College are no longer available to students attending Memorial for the four-month, fall semester only. Housing, Food and Conference Services will no longer accept applications for this study period (fall) unless students are applying for an eight-month period.
Due to the high demand for on-campus housing, there is no guarantee that applicants staying for the entire year will be offered a room. Therefore, it is best to apply for on-campus accommodations as early as possible.
Students who are applying to Memorial for the winter semester only and are interested in living in Burton's Pond or Paton College are encouraged to apply because space may become available at the end of the fall semester.
Students living on campus are usually able to move into their rooms up to two days before the first day of classes. The on-campus housing office will contact you with the exact move-in dates.
If you wish to move in earlier, you must make a request to the housing office by emailing email@example.com. If your request can’t be accommodated, you may need to book temporary accommodations.
