Student Residence – Resources

There are countless resources available to students living in residence. Our Resident Advisors (RAs) and full time staff are knowledgeable on a wide range of resources and are trained to help guide you in the right direction. This level of support is one of many advantages of living in residence.

Below, you will find some of our great online resources as well as George Brown's resources that are free to access for any student. These educational websites and policies will assist students in understanding the effects of alcohol consumption, information on mental wellness, fire safety, and excelling in college, your career and life.

George Brown college is committed to ensuring students know their rights, are able to receive support and access services easily. Please see GBC's sexual violence prevention, response and resources here.
