First-year students, admitted directly from a full-time high school program, are guaranteed an offer of residence if they apply by June 1, 2019. Guaranteed residence offers will be sent out starting mid-June.

Single-Room Guarantee: First-year students who apply by June 1 and are admitted with an average of 90% or higher are guaranteed a single room if they select the single room option on the application.

Students who apply after June 1: We cannot guarantee you a space in residence, but you could be placed on a waiting list. Space will be offered as it becomes available throughout the summer, and priority will be given to first-year students who live the farthest away.
