Red Deer Polytechnic’s Residences have implemented a variety of protocols to help keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Residences provide a friendly atmosphere and safe accommodations for more than 600 students, with a variety of unit styles (including single and shared accommodations) to choose from. 

Our Residence Administration team will continue to create a comfortable home-away-from-home for our students while adapting protocols to ensure everyone remains as healthy and safe as possible. Our goal is to ensure our residents enjoy a memorable and safe experience living on our main campus.
