We do not guarantee residence for first-year students. When offering a space in residence, Ryerson University gives priority to first-year students traveling the furthest distance away from our campus.
You must complete a residence application form after accepting a Ryerson offer of admission. The first round of offers is made in mid-June. Offers continue to be made throughout the summer and school year until the waiting list is exhausted.
A $50 application fee is required with your application.
Meal plans have two components:
All you care to eat at Pitman and ILLC Dining Halls: Meal plan dollars go towards unlimited access to eat as much or little as you like at Pitman Dining Hall or the ILLC Dining Hall. Your OneCard grants you access to the Pitman and ILLC Dining Halls.
$400 to spend at other retailers on campus: You also get $400 to spend at campus eateries like the Hub Café or participating food retailers including Balzac's, Oakham Café and Ram in the Rye. Purchases are deducted from your flex dollar account in a declining balance.
Depending on where you live, residence students have a few options for meal plans.
Pitman Hall or the International Living/Learning Centre (ILLC)
Residence students living at the ILLC or Pitman Hall are automatically enrolled in the 7-day meal plan. If you are living in apartment-style units at Pitman Hall, you can also choose the 5-day meal plan to supplement your own cooking.
Students living at HOEM are encouraged to sign up for either the 7-day or 5-day meal plans, though it is not mandatory. Students can also choose to load any dollar amount onto their OneCard to spend on food at any time.
