Spring 2023

Between January and April we welcome all eligible applicants. The housing application for the Spring 2023 term opens on October 17, 2022.

The number of available spaces for the spring term varies each year. Room offers for the spring term are based on availability. Typically, we have spaces for all new undergraduate students who apply for a room for the Spring term. Rooms are typically offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We may not be able to accommodate undergraduate students who apply late (in December), and we may not have all types of accommodation available.

Graduate students may also apply, although spaces may only be available if there are withdrawals.

Students applying for spring housing may receive a room offer between October - December, depending on availability. We try to offer rooms as early as possible, but we may receive cancellations from current students up until December.

How and when to apply

Before you begin your residence application, make sure you have your NetLink ID and an email address that you will use for at least the next 6 months. 

You will need to pay the non-refundable $50 application fee by credit card or debit. This fee is paid online as part of the application process.

Applications for the spring term open on October 17.

Accommodation Preferences

When you apply, you will be able to rank up to three preferences for housing type (including selecting a room type and a lifestyle based community). We will try our best to accommodate your preferences however we are unable to guarantee your request for a particular type of accommodation.

After I apply

  • Residence Services will send room offers via email between late October and mid-December. We try to offer rooms as early as possible, but we may receive cancellations from current students up until December.
  • If you receive a room offer, you have 72 hours to accept the offer by paying the $500.00 non-refundable acceptance fee, the $250 security deposit and agreeing to the Residence Contract terms.
  • If you submit your acceptance fee, security deposit or completed contract after the deadline, your room offer will be cancelled. If your offer is cancelled, you must contact us about availability.

Spring fees

Security deposit

All residents are required to pay a $250 security deposit that is held by Residence Services for the duration of your stay.

  • The security deposit must be paid when you accept your room offer.
  • If maintenance/cleaning services are required for your room after you move out, the costs will be deducted from your security deposit and the balance will be refunded to you. If the costs exceed $250, additional charges will be billed to your account.

Acceptance fee

When you accept your room offer, you'll be required to pay a $500 acceptance fee. The acceptance fee counts as the first payment toward your term residence fees. The remaining balance of your fees must be paid by December 1 (or as noted in the room offer, if received after December 1).



  • If you wish to cancel your residence application, you may do so through the Housing Portal. On the Application Status page, look for the "Cancel Application" option.
  • Applications are non-transferable. Your application fee is non-refundable and may not be used towards a future application.
  • If you cancel your housing offer on or before December 19, 2022, you will lose your $500 acceptance fee.
  • If you cancel your housing offer between December 20, 2022 and January 3, 2023, you will lose your $500 acceptance fee and your $250 security deposit.
  • If you cancel your housing application on or after your move-in date, you will lose 60 days of accommodation and your $250 security deposit. For Meal Plan cancellation penalties, please check with Food Services.
