Whether you're a conference group looking for a convenient location, a school group looking for an educational environment, a sports group seeking affordable rates, or an individual wanting to stay somewhere with great access to the City of Thunder Bay, Lakehead University Residence is an ideal choice.
Our scenic campus is centrally located within the city and maintains the integrity of its naturally wooded surroundings. Created in 1965 as the University of the North, Lakehead University is located on approximately 150 hectares of land. The campus is situated around man-made Lake Tamblyn and provides the opportunity for many recreational activities throughout the year. Running through the university campus is the McIntyre River which creates a beautiful backdrop for our residence complexes.
Our smoke-free residence complexes are located in close proximity to everything you need on-campus and are all within walking distance to meeting and dining facilities. During the summer season (May through August), we offer dormitory, townhouse or apartment styled lodgings that are all priced at very reasonable rates for groups and travelers.
* All accommodations are subject to availability.
