Brescia to open luxurious new dorms

June 21, 2013

The new $31-million dormitory at Brescia University College in London, ON, is set to open this fall, and will house 320 students in a much different way than traditional dorm rooms do. The all-women’s college will offer single-occupancy rooms with queen-sized beds, personal sinks and vanities, large closets and small fridges. There will be one bathroom for every 2 rooms, and lounges on each floor will offer TVs, kitchens and floor-to-ceiling windows. The main floor will feature an open-concept dining hall that will incorporate techniques from Brescia’s food and nutrition program. The rooms will cost $7,200 for one school year, with a $3,750 mandatory meal plan to accompany the room cost. In the off-season, the building will be used as a conference centre, and it is expected the new single-occupancy rooms will be a primary attraction. London Free Press
