Kappa houses both men and women in single, double and triple occupancy rooms with interior corridors and a community bathroom that serves the students of the same gender living in each Wing. Kappa is a small, close community with a tradition of service and leadership. Residents get connected with both the hall community and within their wing of the building.
A lounge on the ground level features a TV, Ping-Pong table, foosball table, and fireplace. On the second level there is a large main lounge with a fireplace and kitchenette. Smaller floor lounges and kitchenettes are situated throughout the building. Kappa is next door to the tennis/basketball court as well as the Ridgeway Commons, where students can find the dining area and computer lab.
2015 Construction at Ridgeway Kappa
One of Western's main attractions is its magnificent campus and iconic buildings. As part of our ongoing effort to maintain our amazing assets, Ridgeway Kappa will undergo a sprinkler system renovation and cosmetic upgrade over spring and summer of 2015.
Kappa Residents will be relocated before Spring Quarter 2015
Residents of Ridgeway Kappa will move to a new housing assignment before the end of Winter Quarter, March 20, 2015. University Residences is experienced at spring building closures, and Ridgeway Kappa's highly capable staff will engineer the exodus in a way that minimizes impact. Starting in November, students will be contacted for location and roommate preferences; while we cannot guarantee your request, we'll do our best to meet your preferences. Room transfers will begin at the end of fall quarter and continue throughout winter quarter as space becomes available. Kappa residents will have priority status for open space. To learn more about the transfer process, ask questions and express concerns, we encourage you to attend your opening meeting.
Kappa is a small, close community with a tradition of service and leadership. The residents, a mix of returning and first-year students, can easily connect with both the hall community and within their individual wings of the building.
The Kappa hall council is active in the hall and on campus. The council, students, and staff organize various educational and social events throughout the year. The council's efforts culminate each spring with Kappa Karnival, a large, free event with live music, food, and games in Red Square.
