Information regarding the 2025 academic year


Memorial University is a proud partner of the 2025 Canada Games, hosting the Games village, provincial/territorial mission offices, competition and training venues, polyclinic, media centre, and entertainment/social spaces on the St. John’s campus.  


The 2025 Canada Games will leave a legacy that includes St. John’s campus upgrades, academic and work-integrated learning opportunities, and the new Fortis Canada Games Complex.


Memorial is honoured to host nearly 5,000 athletes and coaches in the Games village on the St. John’s campus including housing in some of its residences. Facilities Management and the Canada Games Host Society will need time to prepare rooms and spaces before the athletes arrive.


As a result, from May 1-August 31, 2025 (spring semester/intersession/summer session) Paton College and Macpherson College residences on the St. John’s campus, which usually operate at a reduced capacity during this period, will be closed. Students will be required to move out by the end of the winter semester’s final exams.  


In addition, Guy Court and Gilbert Court in Burton’s Pond will close from July 1-August 31, 2025.


St. John’s campus accommodations will not be available for new student rental from May 1-Aug. 31, 2025.


Memorial will be hiring an additional off-campus housing advisor position to assist students in finding alternative accommodations if needed.


Baltimore Court, Cartier Court, Cabot Court and Signal Hill Campus are excluded.


In addition, Marine Institute and other technical sessions may stay until June 30, 2025.   


A limited short-term guest accommodations season in Macpherson College will also close by mid-July for preparation.

Student residences on Memorial's St. John's campus provides living space for almost 1,700 students. 

 Whether you're a new student to Memorial or a current student there are a variety of accommodation options to choose from.
