It had good sunlight and air, and was okay overall. However, the space in the room was very small and they felt dull and bland if someone didn't decorate a lot and changed it around.

I lived in Korea House so it was still a bit better than the other buildings. However, I wouldn't prefer living in Vanier because it just felt like a worse version of Totem. Everyone always raved about Vanier community but I think the community at the other residences was pretty similar. My overall experience was decent

I had a basement room, so I had a very terrible view and very little sunlight. Also, my room was tiny and the most of the common lounge furniture was broken by some people on my floor. It wasn't a great experience

I have always felt at home in Vanier because the community is so strong! We have shared study spaces, dining hall, pool table so you always have someone to talk to.
