Apply for Residence

We are now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

*New for the 2019-2020 Academic Year*

Residence rooms, in all halls, will now be priced reflecting the size (square feet) of the space. Therefore, double rooms which one person may occupy, called Super Singles, will now have it’s own price – a 10% markup from our single rooms. More information regarding pricing will be updated shortly. In the meantime, please visit our current rates for an estimate, here.

Important messages for our 2019-2020 Residence students. Please read before applying.

There are currently no spaces left in Flora Cowan Hall. If Flora Cowan Hall is your preferred hall, please still indicate this on the application and we will add you to our wait list. Currently, all female identified students will be allocated to McMaster Hall (co-ed).

Please also note that single occupancy rooms cannot be guaranteed. For double occupancy rooms, please indicate on your application if you have a person in mind for roommate pairing. If your preference is for single occupancy, you will be added to a wait list as rooms are given on a first come first serve basis.

NOTE: A $60.00* residence application fee is required along with your application to process your room assignment. The application fee is not refundable, and is not applied to your residence account.
