Residence Warz is a yearlong, inter-residence competition. Each month, teams from every hall compete in a chosen competition and garner points. The team with the most points is awarded the Residence Cup in April. However, even though there is a motivation to win, Residence Warz is more about expressing spirit, being active, having fun, and engaging with peers from other residence buildings.
Some of the Residence Warz events are: soccer, ultimate frisbee, improv, Iron Chef, dodgeball, pub night trivia, and basketball. Events like improv and Iron Chef have featured celebrity guest judges from the university faculty and the greater Montreal community.
The first competition of every year is ResidenceFest I. In other words, the day after move-in, the games begin!
Residence Fest I is a festival format that has a variety of games each year such as inflatable obstacle courses, bubble soccer, a photobooth, and opportunities to win RezWarz points during Tug O’ War and Cheers! It is a great way to get to know people from other residences!
Residence Fest II includes a Bagel Run/Walk to the top of Mont Royal where you can get a sweet view of the city and decide which Famous Montreal Bagel is best; St. Viateur or Fairmount! In years past Residence Fest II has also included a movie night with real movie theatre popcorn and PJs, as well as an American Football Game and a tailgate where students can get free spirit wear from the Hype Team to start off their McGill adventure and to rock/sport at future games! The tailgate also included a residence warz competition; a pre-game kick-off. Points were awarded both for this event and to whichever Residence brought the most students out to the game!
