Residence Life


Director of Residence Life



Residence Life’s mission is to make Concordia home to all its residents by supporting them to grow, connect with community and create positive change. It aims to create a welcoming and diverse community that is inclusive, supportive, and safe.


Residence Life offers a variety of accommodations on both the Loyola and the SGW campuses. It houses approximately 900 students, with a focus on the first-year undergraduate experience and students who are living more than 50 kilometres outside of the Montreal area.

In each of the buildings, there are trained resident assistants who are upper-year undergraduate students who act as mentors to the students living in the building. They create social activities to encourage a positive living environment, assist students in connecting with resources for both personal and academic needs, and ensure a safe living environment. The Residence Life staff and resident assistants provide 24-hour oversight of the residents.

By law, students are required to sign a Lease in an Educational Institution as issued by the Tribunal administratif du logement - Gouvernement du Québec. The lease is for approximately eight and a half months, from the third week of August to the first week of May. Exact dates vary depending on the academic calendar. All residents must also sign a Code of Community Living Standards and Discipline that outlines expectations and rules about community living. Depending on the building in which the student resides, they will either have a mandatory or optional meal plan with Concordia’s food service provider.

Being accepted to Concordia does not guarantee admission to residence. A separate application for on-campus housing can be accessed through the student portal once acceptance is issued by the University.

A full list of the residence fees and meal plan fees are available on the Residence Life webpage at:
