Student support

Eileen Panigeo MacLean House

The Eileen Panigeo MacLean House offers students the opportunity to live in a small community with a cultural focus, allowing them to feel at home in an academic and urban environment, while at the same time supporting their academic efforts and celebrating their successes.
