2: Receive a Room Offer
After your application fee payment is received, the Campus Living Office will email a room offer to you based on the preferences you specified. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
When to Expect a Room Offer
For Winter term applicants: Sent as applications are received
For Spring term applicants: February
For Fall term Applicants: Late March
3: Pay Your Residence Deposit
After receiving a room offer, you must secure your room by paying a $350 residence deposit by the deadline specified in your placement email, or decline it by contacting the Campus Living Office.
Paying this deposit commits the applicant to signing and completing a Campus Living Contract. If the deposit is paid but the applicant does not move in or otherwise fails to complete a contract, the deposit will not be refunded.
*International students whose Study Permits are denied or any student not accepted into their academic program must provide official documentation in order to be considered for a Residence Deposit Refund with no penalty. Please email or call the Campus Living Office for details and deadlines.
See Payment Options.
To ensure that the residence deposit is refunded to you in full, you must leave the room in the same condition as specified on the check-in report when you moved in. See Residence Deposit Refunds for more information about receiving your refund when you move out of residence.
If you are continuing from one term to another, you need to submit a new application in order to retain your room.
A continuing or returning Resident can carry their current deposit over after completing a new application or extending their current contract to reserve the Accommodation for an upcoming term.

Residence fees are due in full before you begin the school term. See the Residence Fees.
Upon moving into Residence, you must sign the Residence Contract before the deadline specified by the Campus Living Office.
