The University of Sudbury Residence, formerly known as the Lucien Matte Residence, provides a "home away from home" to 176 students.  It offers the largest double rooms on campus, as well as a Healthy Living section.  Each room is equipped with an outlet for Internet services.

In a bilingual environment, a range of activities, services and support are provided by the Residence Life Director, the Residence Life Leaders and by the Residence Student Council.  Organized events and activities include: cultural nights, banquets, hockey and ball-hockey, fundraising for charities, and many more.

Small sections of 10 to 15 students provide a comfortable community environment.  Common areas, such as the kitchen and dining area (where you can prepare your own meals), social room, laundry room and study room are conveniently located on the ground floor, ensuring a more peaceful atmosphere in the bedrooms.

At the University of Sudbury Residence many have established friendships that last a lifetime.

They are responsible for logging information, signing guests in and out, and issuing bracelets. Porters are normally the first person who will contact security or emergency personnel if an emergency arises.
