Services for Students 

School offices and services will continue to be offered online and in-person during the College’s core business hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm). This will ensure students can continue to seek supports and information whether they are on-campus or connecting virtually. 

Plans are being made to prepare for food services and other amenities at RDC during the Fall term to support the College community. Updates will be shared as decisions are made throughout the spring and summer.

Details of RDC’s service provision will continue to be updated online.  


RDC’s Residences have remained open and have implemented a variety of protocols to help keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. RDC’s Residences provide a friendly atmosphere and safe accommodations for more than 600 students, with a variety of unit styles (including single and shared accommodations) to choose from. 

Students can apply now to live in RDC’s Residences for the 2021/2022 academic year. Our Residence Administration team will continue to create a comfortable home-away-from-home for our students while adapting protocols to ensure everyone remains as healthy and safe as possible. Our goal is to ensure our residents enjoy a memorable and safe experience living on our main campus.
