Campus Living Centres Strengthens Partnership with Georgian College with the addition of the Barrie campus student residence

Campus Living Centres is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Georgian College Barrie Campus Student Residence Management Services contract. With residence management agreements already in place at the Georgian College Owen Sound and Orillia campuses, Campus Living Centres is delighted to welcome the Barrie campus student residence to our growing portfolio.

Dr. Catherine Drea, Georgian College Vice President Student Engagement and University Partnerships, says the decision to explore a third-party operation of the Barrie campus residence was based on a review of the College’s core business strategies. Dr. Drea continued, “Campus Living Centres was selected as the successful proponent because of Campus Living Centres’ ability to contribute to a positive student experience on campus”.

The residence facility, located in Barrie, Ontario, is 12 years old and houses up to 525 students annually. The eight-storey building consists primarily of two bedroom suites with a bathroom and kitchenette, and also offers one and three bedroom suites. Campus Living Centres is excited to be a part of the strong Residence Life program at the Barrie residence, allowing us to continue our mission of being a leader in Canadian student housing.

The management of the Georgian College Barrie campus student residence will transition to Campus Living Centres on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
