Carleton University has 9 residence buildings. For overnight clients there are two residence buildings, Leeds House and Prescott House. They are both suite style and are equipped with air conditioning. Suite style means that the bedrooms are arranged in groups of 2 or 4 around a kitchen area (table and 4 chairs) fridge with a microwave in Prescott House - in Leeds there is a stove top, however the stovetops are disabled during the summer months(liability issues). All suites have a shared in-suite washroom.
The main difference between Prescott and Leeds is that Prescott has single beds with single and double rooms and Leeds is all single rooms with double beds.While your bedroom will be private, we cannot guarantee you will not have to share your washroom with other guests who may be staying in the other room(s) of the suite.
