The Student Experience in Calumet Residence

This residence pays tribute to the Indigenous connection at York. The word Calumet itself translates to peace pipe. Each of the seven Houses in the residence are named after these Indigenous animals: Wolf, Bear, Loon, Eagle, Turtle and Fox. Calumet is a unique residence at York, completely suite style with six people to a suite. Socializing with others becomes very easy within each House of 22-44 students and the community becomes very close-knit. 


A Welcome from your Residence Life Coordinator

Hello Calumet Residents,

I first want to welcome you to the vibrant community here at Calumet. I hope that while you are here you will grow to call Calumet 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 Calumet 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 in Calumet to be a rewarding and eye-opening experience that helps you discover your true potential.
