MEDIA ADVISORY/PHOTO OPPORTUNITY - Doors open at George Brown College's first student residence

TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2016 /CNW/ - The very first students will move in to George Brown College's inaugural student residence, The George, on Saturday, Sept. 3.

As thousands of students head back-to-school, 500 George Brown students will be making history, becoming the first to live in the college's inaugural student residence. The facility, which previously housed American athletes during the 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am Games, was transformed from a temporary athletes' village housing complex into a state-of-the-art student residence.

Students will have a unique downtown Toronto experience living in the modern facility with sweeping views of the city.  Featuring fully furnished two-bedroom suites complete with a kitchenette, three-piece bathroom, floor to ceiling windows, Wi-Fi and a flat screen TV with cable service, The George promises the perfect setting to live and learn in Toronto.

Media are invited to attend move-in day, take photos, tour the residence, and interview students as well as college representatives.
