Residence Fees

Application Fee

The $50 non-refundable application fee is used to process your application. The application fee is required for all new applications, but it is not required for a current Resident applying for the upcoming term, provided there is no break in dates.

The application fee is due within two business days of submitting your application. See Payment Options ›

Residence Deposit

The $350 Residence Deposit* is due five business days** from when room selection or offer is sent. See Payment Options ›

* The Residence Deposit is waived for RRC Polytech students that will be living in residence for less than 60 days.

** Sponsored students must contact the Campus Living Office prior to the payment deadline to make special arrangements.
