Parkhill University Residence provides accommodation and complete domestic services to young men studying in universities and colleges in the Ottawa area. Its residents benefit from a warm, friendly atmosphere that facilitates the development of solid study habits.

Our goal is to complement the professional education of our residents by helping them to become people of character and sensitivity, who can appreciate truth and beauty, who are concerned for those in need and inspired by a spirit of service. The Residence will appeal to people with high ideals and a genuine interest for the big questions and needs of our times. It seeks to foster a Christian atmosphere where people can freely grow in their faith as they develop their professional skills and human virtues. Parkhill is open to students of all nationalities and faiths.

Parkhill is owned and operated by the Association for Cultural and Educational Development (ACED), a not-for-profit corporation founded in 1992 and recognized as a charitable organization. The activities of a spiritual nature are entrusted to the Opus Dei Prelature, an institution of the Catholic Church founded by Saint Josemaria Escriva.
