About the College

The college's distinctive buildings range along a cedar ridge overlooking the river from which the college derives its name ('fast, flowing water'). To the east, an uninterrupted vista of rolling rural landscapes; to the west, the newly-constructed Peter Gzowski College and the Science buildings, the Faryon pedestrian bridge, providing easy access to the Bata Library, the Athletic Complex and the other Symons Campus colleges.

Eight "houses" of residence, all of them connected by an interior walkway called "the Street", make up Otonabee's residence. Each house contains single and double bedrooms with desks and closets, a kitchenette and a commons area. There is a laundry room for the college as well. Adjacent to the residence is the College Office where the Principal, College Assistant, and Senior Tutor have their offices. Past "the Link", a set of faculty offices, is located the academic wing.
