Student housing at Canisius provides a sense of community and connectedness, as well as countless social and educational learning opportunities. Each of our 5 residence halls has a distinct character and life of its own and offers opportunities for any student to find a comfortable living space.
Our freshman dorms include Bosch and Frisch Halls, located on the north end of campus. Approximately 300 students live in Bosch or Frisch, in single, double or two or four person suites. There are five bathrooms per floor. Each floor also has a social lounge, and a kitchenette. Student rooms are all equipped with Wifi and streaming services. Coin-free laundry facilities are located at the tunnel level of each hall. Bosch and Frisch are also connected to the convenient tunnel system, which links the residence halls to the entire campus.
