Our previous student residence, Bergen Hall, was destroyed in a fire on June 1, 2017. Because we are a residential campus, we needed to replace the lost spaces and plan for an increase in student growth.
The new building design promotes a fun and thriving Christ-centered student learning community, with a bright, warm and inviting home-like atmosphere. We describe and label this residence as a ‘Living and Learning Centre’ because we believe that learning also happens outside the classroom, and this building was intentionally designed for that purpose. The mission of Providence is that we become people of knowledge and character who lead and serve others. Our vision is that our mission is lived out inside this new student ‘home’ as the spiritual, academic and community life of students is brought together.

The Bergen Hall foundation was removed in March of 2018 to make space for the new residence foundation. Digging for the new foundation began in November 2018, and the foundation was laid in January 2019. By July 2019, the super structure was almost completed, and interior framing had begun. Students moved into the new residence January 2020! The exterior will be completed later in 2020.
