All students living in residence must be full-time registered students through the entire period that they reside in residence. Students who wish to remain in residence when their registration status is reduced to part-time must receive permission from the Manager of Housing Services and Residence Life.

Residence facilities are provided in 13 main residence buildings, which house approximately 2,495 single men and women. Of this number 2,319 beds are reserved for incoming undergraduate first-year students. The residence buildings are composed of both dormitory-style accommodations as well as apartment-style accommodations. There are 844 beds available in the apartment-style accommodations (singles and doubles) and 1,651 beds available in the dormitory-style accommodations (singles and doubles).

The residence communities are managed by a staff including residence life area co-ordinators and dons (i.e., residence assistants). Each residence has a house council, which represents students' interests in social and recreational activities. Students in residence are provided with a Residence Handbook, which outlines the rules and regulations of residence. Smoking is not permitted in any Laurier residence.

All students living in residence are provided with mail delivery five days per week.

A university meal plan is required for all residence students residing in dormitory-style accommodations. This flexible "declining balance" type of meal plan is available for use in the Dining Hall and The Terrace (food court), as well as at a number of other on- and off-campus food outlets. Since Bricker Residence, Laurier Place Residence, University Place Residence and Regina Residence offers each student kitchen facilities, a meal plan is not mandatory. (Students may choose to purchase a meal plan if desired. Refer to the Food Service Facilities section).

All residences are connected to the Internet through the WLU Resnet Service.
