Preparing for Residence

Preparing for Residence gives students living in residence for the first time an opportunity to explore the three success “I’s” to Independent Living:

  • Reduce Isolation
  • Strengthen Interaction
  • Develop Independence

The aim of the initiative is to support students with ASD living in residence as they navigate the often challenging landscape of social interaction and rules of engagement.  Difficulties in these areas can often lead to outcomes that compromise a student’s mental health and well-being.  Working with the support of residence staff and Disability Services, this program will employ a variety of resources to promote and strengthen awareness of and connection to resources designed to support student success.
