Does anyone know how much it costs to live in barracks in Kingston (room and board)?

Thanks!

So in Shilo it is costing a guy $350/mth for food?

I spend $400 a month and that feeds 5 of us three good squares and 3-4 snacks/day. That feeds two adults a preteen boy, a girl with hollow legs and a my little qarterback 4yr old son.

Wow!!!! I spend that much just for me, but I eat lots for training purposes.

I will also go to 3 or 4 different stores to get the best deal on food.

Could someone currently attending the AVN course at CFSATE give some idea, details on the accommodations?

How many per room?
What are the rooms like?
can you have high speed internet / cable hook ups?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

PS.  Feel free to give some feedback on the training you are going through as well .. I'll be there in January.

I'm on the AVN course.

3-4 per room. If you are one of the lucky courses, like mine, you'll get 2 per room seperate from the barracks.

If you get the 3-4, they aren't all that big and you have just a closest for your stuff, you'll also get a desk for "studying". The 2's are smaller then the 3-4's, but all they can have is 2 max and you get a larger closet and a bug storage room for your stuff e.i. Golf clubs, hockey gear, car stuff, rifles, clothing, whatever.

Yes, you have can get an internet hook-up, Cable or DSL.

You will enjoy it here. The staff make it very memorable....... ::)

Hi all,
Sorry to cut in on your post but does anyone know what the accomodations are like for someone who is going to be living in single's quarters for 6 months?  I am not on trades training.  Entering as a Cpl and will be there for my 6month OJE.   I have been informed that I will have a single occupancy room and that I could bring a microwave/small fridge/tv/computer and such for my room. Is this true?  How large are these rooms?  Any help would be appreciated as I am due to arrive there the end of January once I finish my BMQ.
Thanks
P

CFSCE - 4 to a room, internet hook up available through commercial provider (There may be exceptions, this is just what I experienced and what I saw). Barracks are co-ed, rooms are not.
Remember troops, the minimum acceptable standard is still an acceptable standard.

I really hate people you can't do anything for themselves.  This question (Reply #13 ) in this thread was only answered in Jutes Reply #1 http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,35631.msg285500.html#msg285500

When people do things like this, it really has a negative reflection on our opinion of them.

I know you said "Thanks. Duly noted" last time.  Apparently not the case, though.

Yes, there is block leave for 2 weeks in July/August and 2 weeks for xmas. Plus all stat holidays and march break you will get a week off if you have enough leave days left. They might also throw in a curve ball and give you leave, only to cancel it with everyone already having made travel/flight and personal/family plans. You will love CFSATE.  ;D

Well .. I'm here now .. he he .. and officially on PAT until May 06 .. At least you can count on the block leaves in summer and Christmas.  Hope I can find some OJT until the time my course starts up.

If anyone needs info before coming to Borden .. Just ask and I will do my best to answer .. CFRC may not always provide the most accurate info (not necessarily their fault either)

cheers

I'm currently in CFSATE (pat platoon). Im' in bldg A-150 (next to the "o" club). 4 to a room here now, its pretty crowded at the moment.
you can get high speed net and cable(digital also). I'm actually fortunate to have a long term tasking to 17 hgr.
but overall it not a bad place.

P.S.  oh yea no alcohol or ladies in barracks :'(
