First off-campus residence for Mohawk College opening May 1 in downtown Hamilton

Mohawk College is opening its first off-campus residence this spring, with a 150-unit dorm-style residence welcoming students to downtown Hamilton May 1.

“We are excited to nearly double our residence space by providing Mohawk College students with an off-campus housing option,” said Mohawk College Vice President of Corporate Services Kim Watkins. “This residence will provide students with another safe, affordable option for accommodation when they choose to move to Hamilton to study.”

In response to the ongoing housing crisis in Hamilton and across Canada the college, which currently has just one 340-bed residence building located on the Fennell campus, chose to add additional housing options for students. Linden Hall (55 Catharine St. S.) will accommodate as many as 300 students, with each unit boasting two double beds, two desks and two storage cabinets, a small refrigerator, and a bathroom with a bathtub/shower.

In the new residence, students will have access to a common kitchen with cooking equipment, including a dishwashing area and a common dining space on the main floor. A self-serve micro market will also be available. Students will be able to socialize in three dedicated lounge areas, located on three different floors. Other amenities include onsite laundry, mail service and Wi-Fi throughout the residence. The location is also close to Hamilton Street Railway transit lines.

Registration for the Mohawk College Linden Hall residence opened this week and will be available for students to move in on May 1, ahead of the summer semester start date.

The college also signed a partnership with SpacesShared, an innovative online home sharing platform, in February an effort to provide students with a hosted accommodation living arrangement.
