War Memorial House has lots of history as it was once used for members of the military in the Second World War. Located near the Acadia Athletics Complex and science buildings, “Barrax” is a popular place for science students and student athletes.

Benefits of Residence Living

Acadia's residences offer students a prime location, as they are located only minutes from classrooms, labs, the gym and library. Living on campus offers the ease of an eight-month lease, which includes all the amenities.

 “Residence life provides an opportunity to learn from others,” says James Sanford, Acadia’s director of Student Affairs. “It’s a chance to explore, a chance to be independent, and it also allows for a level of security and a level of safety that is comforting to many students and their families.”
