Temporary Summer Accommodation

Elgin Hall offers temporary "Bed and Breakfast" style accommodation in the summer months only (early May to late August) at very reasonable rates; see also their weekly and monthly plans and their rates and plans including cleaning and/or breakfast. Elgin Hall is a modern, air-conditioned residence situated on University Drive, off Richmond St. North. Conveniently located on a direct bus line, Elgin Hall is a 10 minute bus ride from downtown London, yet it is still on Western's main campus. Bus service is across the road in front of Medway Hall and there is coin-entry parking nearby.

After the first week of May, see their website.


Western now has an on-campus residence specifically for graduate and upper-year undergraduate students! Located next to Essex Hall, London Hall offers two- and three-bedroom suites with double beds, an optional meal plan, placement with your choice of roommate(s), and a residence life program geared to your graduate or upper-year needs.
