Algoma University (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada)
Algoma University was founded in 1965 on a site that was previously the Shingwauk Indian Residential School. The university has three campuses (Sault Ste.

Marie campus provides three housing options.

Each townhouse has five bedrooms along with a fully furnished kitchen and living room space.
