Single Room Guarantee (under review): You will be assigned to a single room if you are a first-year student admitted with a minimum 90% average, and you apply by May 1, and you select the single room preference.
Residence offers will be sent out starting May. Please contact Housing to discuss your application if you have not heard from us by mid-July.
Students who apply after May 1: We cannot guarantee you a space in residence and you could be placed on a waiting list. Space will be offered as it becomes available throughout the summer, and priority will be given to first-year students who live farthest away.
First-year students should experience living in a traditional dorm-style residence with a roommate. It’s a great way to meet other students, socialize and study together. Plus you’ll enjoy the convenience of a meal plan. Dorm residence is our most affordable option and cleaning services are provided in the common areas and washrooms.
Suite-style residence is a preferred choice for upper-year students who may like to share amenities and cook and clean for themselves.
The roommate selection module will be open between April and throughout the summer, when both of you can return to your online residence application and accept each other before Housing can confirm your room assignment together.
Housing will make every effort to accommodate your preferences, but we reserve the right to assign all residence space according to availability, suitability, fairness and need.
