Stanstead College's new Grade 12 residence -- Cowen House -- will meet the growing demand for accommodation and provide our graduating students the sense of what it is like to live at university.
It will be the first new residence at the school since the opening of Webster House in 1991. It is named in honour of the Cowen family, who have been generous supporters and donors of Stanstead College for many years.
The new residence will resolve two issues at Stanstead College. With increased enrollment, particularly in the higher grades, the senior residences have reached maximum capacity. Secondly, the new residence will recognize the fact that our Grade 12s are transitioning to adulthood and should therefore have certain privileges not afforded the younger students.
“We want to make your transition to university even better and we feel that this type of residence is going to help with that because most of the residences you’re going to move into for university truly are co-ed,” said Head of School Michael Wolfe.
While the residence will be co-ed, it will have separate wings for boys and girls, with no shared entry point except the front door.
