Boarding Facilities

Ashbury’s newest student accommodation is a boutique-style residence for seven students, located on Maple Lane, directly across from Maclaren Hall and the campus sport fields. Students who live in Maple Residence have a unique proximity to all campus amenities, while enjoying intimate surroundings. A large open common room looks onto campus, while a generous outdoor deck complements the mix of single and double rooms with en-suite bathroom facilities. The Maple residential teaching team provides on-site supervision and support. In addition to enjoying their own common areas, laundry facilities, and kitchen, students have full access to the larger, all-girls Heather Gillin Residence.

The Heather Gillin Residence, located at the northwest corner of the campus, provides a warm and comfortable living space for 51 young women, Grades 9 to 12, and four female residential staff. A full kitchen provides the opportunity to share time together and allows our students to experience the international flavours that roommates might wish to prepare for friends from around the world. This two-storey residence has 19 single rooms and 16 double rooms, each containing private en-suite bathrooms. All girls have access to common areas with flat-screen televisions, exercise equipment, games and study rooms, laundry facilities, a music room with piano, and ample storage space. This state-of-the-art facility, in conjunction with the other residences, is home to students representing over 30 countries.

Matthews House is situated on the southwest corner of the campus. It is home to 51 male boarding students in Grades 9–12. This residence has two floors with a variety of single and double occupancy rooms. Some rooms look out over the sports fields of the campus and others have a courtyard view. The boys have full access to common spaces featuring a flat screen television, foosball and pool tables, piano, a games room and weight training area, in addition to laundry facilities and a bright, spacious kitchen. All meals are prepared for our boarding students in Maclaren Hall, our dining facility.
