Students at a university in northwestern Manitoba are finding themselves in unfamiliar settings.
The students are being sent to dormitory style dormitries, the latest addition to the university’s dormitry standard.
Students are being asked to keep their rooms tidy and stay out of the way of neighbours.
It’s not a new concept for students at the University of Winnipeg.
In a 2012 report to the province, the university said its students are required to use common room and bathroom facilities as well as “clean, comfortable and sanitary rooms.”
University spokesman Brian Murphy said it was a voluntary move by students to avoid living with each other while in their dormitys.
They’re not just getting the same standard of living as everyone else.
They are getting the standard of care that is needed for life in an urban setting.
