Your residence hall
You’ll live in a double-occupancy room, with a roommate, or in a single-occupancy room, subject to availability. Rooms are approximately 175 square feet in size. Each floor in Darrach Hall has a large central communal washroom.
Darrach Hall has a large TV/Games room, where you can relax, socialize, and play billiards, air hockey, or fooseball.
Laundry facilities are located in the basement.
Darrach Hall is well-known for its community spirit. Each year Darrach Hall teams dominate in BU’s intramural sports program, and for two years in succession Darrach Hall residents have won the annual Inter-Residence Canadian Blood Services Donation Competition.
Due to Brandon University’s smoking policy, there is no smoking anywhere in the Residence Complex.
Due to fire and health concerns, upholstered furniture may not be brought into the residence. If you want to bring an upholstered chair or couch into your room, or bring your own bed, mattress, or futon, it must be new, and this must be confirmed by presenting the original, dated receipt to residence management. If, for health reasons, you require an exception to this policy, contact the Director of Residence Hall Programs at least two weeks prior to your anticipated check-in date.
