Rowell Jackman Hall

Due to their architecture and age, our residences can be challenging living environments for students with accessibility needs. In 1993 Rowell Jackman Hall was built in accordance with the accessibility standards of the time, but even it no longer meets some current accessibility requirements.

Our suite-style residence offers single-sex and co-ed housing options. Each suite houses three to seven students in single and double rooms. The suites have common rooms, one or two washrooms, shared kitchen facilities and a living room. This residence is home to primarily upper-year students, although some first-year students are also housed in double rooms.

Some suites are designed to accommodate residents with accessibility needs, and the building is wheelchair-accessible from the parkade level.
