How to apply

Before applying, ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements and review the Family Housing Agreement to understand your responsibilities as a member of the community. Make sure you have your NetLink ID and an active email address. You will need to pay the non-refundable $50 application fee by credit or debit card.

You can submit your application at any time during the year and will be notified as soon as a unit becomes available. We recommend that you apply as soon as possible prior to your desired occupancy date to increase your chances of success.

Your application will remain active for a maximum of two years. Within those two years, and subject to availability, you may receive a maximum of two offers. If both offers are declined, your application will be cancelled.

Family Housing applications that are inactive will be cancelled. Applications may be considered inactive if:

  • An applicant is not enrolled at UVic after their requested arrival date, or
  • An applicant does not respond to emails regarding their enrolment status and/or requests to update their Family Housing application details.
