ALL ABOUT PERTH

WAS THIS ONE OF YOUR TOP CHOICES?

Yes, it was my second choice

STYLE OF BUILDING: HYBRID

  • More space 

  • If you are in a double room, there’s one bathroom for 4 people (including yourself)

  • If you are in a single room, there’s one bathroom for 2 people (including yourself) 

  • If you are in a double room, there's a wall that kind of separates the room in two, and you can’t see your roommate while sleeping. This is nice for privacy 

  • Many people find it easier to study as the room is bigger and there is more space 

PROS

  • Further from campus compared to other residences

  • Hybrid style is not as outgoing as traditional style buildings 
     

CONS

PERTH PROS AND CONS

  • Has a gym 

  • Has a basketball court 

  • Has a very nice lounge 

  • Has a study lounge. This is nice if you get too lazy to walk to a building to study, or if your roommate is making too much noise in the room causing you to not be able to study

  • Has a very nice cafeteria with great late night snacks 

  • Perth is right next to essex and Ohall, which is nice because you meet people from other halls pretty easily 

  • Perth is right next to 7 eleven which is open 24/7 

  • Perth is right next to a pharmacy and a bookstore 

  • Perth is right next to subway and barakat (shawarma place)

  • Its a smaller building compared to other buildings, which means that by the end of the year, there’s a big chance you know everyone, which is nice 

  • Perth is a 5 min walk from the ivey building and the engineering building, which are great study spots 

  • Perth is a 2 minute walk from the rec center (the gym)

PROS

  • A little far from campus compared to other halls but it’s not bad

  • Can be a little too quiet sometimes (which isn’t a con for everyone)

CONS

HOW DID YOU FIND OTHER PEOPLE IN THE BUILDING?

Everyone was super nice. The best part about Perth is you had a mix of everything. Some people were really quiet, others liked to party, some were really sporty … People were really easy to approach and by the end of the year, you may almost know everyone because its a smaller building compared to other buildings 

FAVOURITE SPOTS IN REZ

  • The Student Lounge on the second floor: I love that spot because it has a ping pong and pool table, and it’s where I met a lot of my friends. It’s an easy way to meet people and have fun at the same time. 

FAVOURITE EXPERIENCES IN REZ

  • All the late night mcds meals that we would have in the second floor lounge with a big group of people 

  • All the ping pong games we would play with essex people

  • The fun floor meetings 

FINAL WORDS OF WISDOM

Perth is basically the place to be.
