Accommodation & Facilities
School and Residence Facilities
Pickering College has a large and historic campus located in the small town of Newmarket, just 40 minutes from Toronto. Campers take advantage of Pickering College's sports and athletic spaces through co-curricular programming and evening activities.
We provide all campers with a safe and supportive place to call home in our residences: Firth House and New House. Campers will be assigned a roommate in comfortable twin-bed study rooms. There are also Common Rooms in each residence for relaxing and socializing. Common Rooms may be used during free time after all school obligations are met. Daily Internet access is provided to allow students to connect with family and friends back home, but is scheduled to ensure that campers get a good night's sleep and are encouraged to practice their English with the other campers.
Each student will have a bed, desk, chair, lamp, bookshelf and cupboard with a dresser and drawers. Bathrooms are shared with other students.
Laundry and Housekeeping
Campers are responsible for their own laundry and for cleaning their clothes. Free washers, dryers and laundry soap are provided for that purpose. Staff is on hand to help when needed.
Campers are responsible for making their bed every day and for the general tidiness of their rooms. The housekeeping staff will vacuum the floor and dust from time-to-time. The housekeeping staff will be pleased to help you with any problems regarding your room or your clothing if you ask them for help.
