Apply for Residence

McMaster Hall occupancy, including the Standard Plus Room, is limited in quantity. We encourage applicants to select a variety of options when choosing 1st and 2nd preferences; this gives our office enough information to give you the best possible room offer based on what is available.

Application Disclaimer

The Residence Office is CLOSED for the winter break starting December 23rd and re-opening January 3rd. Applications will not be processed during this time.

Students who have paid their $350 deposit and signed their offer will be encouraged to move in on January 3rd or later.

Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis with priority given to current resident students. While we try our best to accommodate room preferences, we cannot guarantee student’s first or second choice of hall and/or room type. If a student receives their second choice, they will not automatically be placed on a wait list for their first choice unless otherwise requested.

We strongly encourage students to read over our residence information below before applying for residence.
