Assignment and Preferences

1. Returning residents are strongly encouraged to apply early and no later than February 28, 2018 to improve their chances of getting an offer and/or receiving their room/suite preferences. Housing reserves the right to rescind any offers if student applicant is found not eligible to live in the residence they applied for.

2. Spaces will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Housing will continue to accept applications throughout the summer or until all spaces are filled.

3. Housing will make every effort to accommodate students' preferences, but we reserve the right to assign all residence space according to availability, suitability, fairness and need.

Offer Acceptance and Confirmation

Residence offers will be sent out beginning June by email. To accept the offer, students must, by the offer deadline date:

  1. return via email or fax the signed acceptance letter (both pages), AND 
  2. pay a $300 non-refundable room reservation deposit online using a credit or visa debit card upon acceptance of their residence room offer. The deposit is not an additional charge and will be credited back to their student account after move-in. Instructions on how to pay the room deposit online will be included in the offer email.

The housing offer email contains specific details of residence and room being offered. Unless due to an extenuating circumstance, students may not request to change residence/room assignments. After moving in, students must notify the Residence Life staff if they are having challenges in their current placement. Furthermore, transfers are not permitted unless alternative space is available and are mediated as a final resolution between Residence Life staff and Housing Services. Transfers may also result to additional fees.

Upon declining a residence offer, students may ask to be placed back on the waiting list or cancel their application.

If students do not respond by the deadline indicated in the housing offer email, their applications will be cancelled. Students may contact Housing and request to reactivate their applications so they can be placed back on the waiting list.

Information about moving in and specific residence details will be included in the offer package. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the Housing Office and check their application status from time to time.

Waitlisted Applicants

Students are encouraged to contact Housing Services at to follow up on their application status if they do not hear back by mid-July.

Cancellation, No-Show and Early Withdrawal Policy (currently under review)

Applicable cancellation, no-show and early withdrawal fees will be charged to your Student Account. You are required to notify us in writing if you decide to cancel your room reservation at any time. The York Admissions Office will not notify Housing Services in the event you decide not to attend York.

  1. NON-REFUNDABLE ROOM DEPOSIT: Any student who cancels their room reservation must give notice of the cancellation in writing to Housing Services and will forfeit their $300 room reservation deposit. The room reservation deposit is not refundable under any circumstance.
  2. LATE CANCELLATION FEE: Any student who cancels their room reservation after Monday, July 31 and continues to be enrolled at the University will be charged a $250 late cancellation fee as Housing cannot guarantee to find another student to re-fill the space which may result in a vacancy.
  3. NO-SHOW: Any student who does not check into their room by the first day of classes and does not notify Housing Services of a late arrival date will be charged a $500 no-show fee as Housing cannot guarantee to find another student to re-fill the space which may result in a vacancy.
  4. EARLY WITHDRAWAL FROM RESIDENCE: Any student who takes occupancy and wishes to terminate their occupancy agreement early must inform Housing Services in writing by completing the Early Withdrawal form. The student will continue to be responsible for payment of the full residence and meal fees unless another applicant who is selected by Housing Services agrees to take over the occupancy agreement. In all circumstances, Housing cannot guarantee to refill the space. Should the room be reassigned to another student, the room fees will be adjusted for both students according to their actual occupancy dates. Additionally, the student who withdraws from residence early will be charged a $500 early withdrawal fee.
