The Student Experience in Bethune Residence

Bethune residence is home to many students from the Faculty of Health Sciences. Students strike a good balance between their commitment to their studies and having fun. Typically, students can be seen in lounges studying, watching movies and sharing meals together. Bethune residents always have their "eyes on the prize"--they have a healthy competitive spirit that leads to events such as dodge ball, board games, bingo and trivia nights. We encourage new ideas and are willing to try your ideas to help to establish new traditions and a positive experience for all students.

A Welcome from your Residence Life Coordinator

Hello Bethune Residents,

I first want to welcome you to the vibrant community here at Bethune. I hope that while you are here you will grow to call Bethune your second home.  Residence is where you are encouraged to be yourself and grow as a person.

As the RLC I oversee the residence community and assist you through your development at York. To help me with this are amazing student leaders called Dons. The Dons are here to help you transition into university life and become a strong and independent person, ready for the challenges that university can hold. Together we will work to ensure that Bethune is a safe and inclusive space.

As the year moves along there will be many opportunities to become involved in the residence and I highly encourage you to make the most of your time with us.  I recommend that you look over the Residence Handbook and the Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities as they are key tools in ensuring that your transition into living in residence is a smooth one.

Finally, I hope that you find your time here at Bethune to be a rewarding and eye-opening experience that helps you discover your true potential.
