Fraser Hall was constructed in 1978 with the north wing added in 1991. It has three floors and three large lounges—all equipped with couches and satellite television. The first floor lounge is co-ed and is a popular place to study, play pool or relax by the cozy fireplace. The second and third floor lounges are equipped with stoves and microwaves providing an invitation to create and share a meal together in community.
There are two types of living arrangements in Fraser Hall: traditional style and apartment style. Traditional style housing is predominantly for 1st and 2nd year students, and Fraser contains traditional housing for both male (South Fraser) and female residents (North Fraser). These sections are separated by a centre section of apartments that are reserved for 3rd and 4th year students.
Apartments have one or two bedrooms, a full kitchen and bath, small storage area and living room. Fraser apartment residents have two Apartment Reps who plan events and build community.
Traditional housing is typically split up into areas that have between 15-20 people, with double occupancy rooms, that are organized around a small common lounge and assigned a Resident Assistant (student leader). All lounges contain couches, a fridge, a sink and a cupboard nook, and are a great place to visit with friends, make a snack, or study.
