Room Assignments

Assignments are based on your 1st, 2nd, 3rd preferences on your application. We assign based on 1st preference, but this cannot be guaranteed due to availability.

Alumni Hall assignments are based on your academic average from grades received from Registrars at the confirmation deadline.

GPA (grade point average) is waived for students applying to live in a living learning community.

1st year students are typically assigned to double rooms but a limited number of single rooms are available. These are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

First year students can expect to receive their room assignment email by the end of July.

Beyond 1st year, students are assigned to single rooms.

Room Switch Process

Residence Services has the right to relocate students if required.

A student can request a room switch and can be re-assigned if approved. They must contact their Residence Life Coordinator who will review the request and make a recommendation to the Admissions Secretary.

If approved, a processing fee of $100 is applied to the student’s account.

If a room change results in a higher fee, the student is responsible for the additional costs. This will be pro-rated from the time of room change to the end of the contract.

Moving to a Single Room

There are a limited number of single rooms available across the residence system.

In most cases, these rooms are fully occupied so if students are interested in a single room, they can request their name be placed on a wait list in the Residence Office.

However, there is no guarantee that single rooms will become available during the year.

Assignments will depend on various circumstances and are at the sole discretion of the Residence Office.
