How to Apply for Residence

1. Submit Your Form and Application Fee

Apply online – once your application has been received by Campus Living you will be contacted by email with information regarding paying your application fee.

NOTE: Please add the email addresses from the Contact Us page to your email safe list. It is essential that you check your email, including your Junk/Spam folder, to ensure Campus Living Office communications reach you.

Your non-refundable $50 application fee can be paid on WebAdvisor  in-person, or on the phone.

See our Payment Options.

How do I cancel my application? If you have created an application but want to cancel it, contact the Campus Living Office.

2. Receive a Room Offer

After your application fee payment is received, the Campus Living Office will email a room offer to you based on the preferences you specified. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

You can expect to receive a room offer as rooms are available

3. Pay Your Residence Deposit

New Applicants

After receiving a room offer, you must secure your room by paying a $350 residence deposit by the deadline specified in your placement email, or decline it by contacting the Campus Living Office.

Paying this deposit guarantees the applicant a room for the term in their room offer. A room reservation may be cancelled with no penalty until one month before the standard move in date, see Important Dates  for deadlines. After the cancellation deadline if the deposit has been paid but the applicant does not move in or otherwise fails to complete a contract, the deposit will not be refunded.

*International students whose Study Permits are denied or any student not accepted into their academic program must provide official documentation in order to be considered for a Residence Deposit Refund with no penalty. Please email or call the Campus Living Office for details and deadlines.

See Payment Options.

To ensure that the Residence deposit is refunded to you in full, you must leave the room in the same condition as specified on the check-in report when you moved in. See Residence Deposit Refunds for more information about receiving your refund when you move out of Residence.

Continuing/Renewing Applicants

If you are continuing from one term to another, you need to contact the Campus Living office or submit a new application.

A continuing or returning Resident can carry their current deposit over after completing a new application or extending their current contract to reserve the Accommodation for an upcoming term.

4. Pay Your Room Fees

Residence fees are due in full before you begin the school term. See the Residence Fees.

Upon moving into Residence, you must sign the Residence Contract before the deadline specified by the Campus Living Office.

5. Purchase Tenant Insurance

All residents are encouraged to purchase insurance. Read more about Tenant Insurance.
