The Student Experience in Winters Residence

Winters Residence has a culture of collaboration, self-expression, and artistic appreciation.  There are always students practicing their craft, whether it be dance, music, or theatre.  Typically students enjoy being artistic and demonstrate this through jam sessions, performances, and art.  We offer an Art Studio as a positive space where students can work on their paintings or crafts.  Traditional events include Winters Got Talent, Mural painting, and Year End Brunch.  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 Winters Residents,

My name is Caroline Papple and I am the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) for Winters Residence.  I first want to welcome you to the vibrant community here at Winters.  I hope that while you are here you will grow to call Winters 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 eight 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 Winters 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 Winters to be a rewarding and eye-opening experience that helps you discover your true potential.
