If you are a first-year student who has been offered guaranteed housing, you will have been notified by means of a seperate e-mail following the receipt of your offer of admission. You will then be required to do a couple of more things to accept that guarantee. If you are offered a guaranteed place, you must apply by May 15 (see the process outlined below). Later, you will you be sent an offer for an on-campus room type*. You then have to pay a $825 confirmation fee and purchase the residence meal plan of $4430* before June 1. If you do not apply by May 15, or do not make those payments, you will no longer have a guaranteed place in on-campus housing.
Students who do not have a guaranteed place in residence may apply as of May 16.
*Only those with complete applications can be sent room offers.
** Price is for 2019-20 and is subject to change.
Who else can apply and when?
After Guaranteed Housing offers are done, priority is given to first-year undergraduate students under the age of 23. The following other students may also apply as long as they are full-time Concordia students and currently live more than 50 kilometers from campus:
If you are a student enrolled in a Graduate Diploma, Masters, or Ph.D. programme, you may apply for housing. Graduate students can live in the Jesuit Residence on the Loyola Campus or in one of a very limited number of rooms in the Grey Nuns Residence on the Sir George Williams campus. Graduate students may apply as of May 16.
Continuing Education students enrolled in Concordia's Intensive English Language Program that have been accepted into an undergraduate program may apply for housing. Cont-ed students may apply as of May 16.
Applications from 4-month exchange students are only accepted for the winter session. Applications for winter open the second week of October. 8-month exchange students may apply as of May 16.
Second-year students who have previously lived in residence must contact Residence Life if they wish to apply again. Permission is granted on a case-by-case basis. Returning residents must reapply before May 16. If you are a current resident who wants to return, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
How to apply
You must first be granted conditional or final acceptance by Concordia University to be able to apply for housing.
Required to apply for residence
1. A Concordia netname and password
2. A valid credit card number (Visa, MasterCard or American Express and Interact on-line)
Visit your visit MyConcordia portal, Click on your My Student Center and then scroll down to Admissions. Near the bottom on the left-hand side you will see in the menu Housing Application (eRez).
There is a non-refundable $100 application fee that can be payed with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Interact. Please make sure that your browser's pop-up blockers do not prevent the necessary windows from opening.
At any point during the application you can click on “Save & Exit”; your answers will be saved and the application can be completed later. When your application is complete, you will be sent an automatic confirmation email. This is not a guarantee of a room or room offer. Applicants who are extended room offers will receive them via the email address they provided in their application.
If you want to share a double room with a specific friend, you can create a roommate group. You must complete your profile and housing application before this option will appear in eRez. You will need your friend's full name and student ID number to make your group.
When are offers sent out?
If you were offered a guaranteed place in residenceas part of your admission, you have until May15 to submit your housing application to make sure you receive a housing offer from us.
Offers start going out to guaranteed applicants in late March.
We send out room offers to applicants without a guarantee after May 15.
We send out offers throughout the summer, until all spaces are filled.
We offer rooms based on:
Order of application
Availability of room type requested
Any other relevant data
Applicants who are offered a room will be sent a room-offer email with a deadline to confirm with the two following steps:
Payment of a $825.00 room confirmation fee. $700 of this will be credited back to your student account upon move in and applied to your rent.
*Note that the offer will only be for a room type at this point, not a specific room*
Cancelling a room offer after payments:
Once paid, $700.00 of the room confirmation fee is not refundable under any circumstance. This applies to delayed visas resulting in being unable to take occupation of the assigned room, or a decision not to attend the University for your studies. The $125 infrastructure upgrade fee component is refundable.
Full meal plan is refundable, minus a $100 administrative fee.
Students who fail to arrive to take occupancy of their room by the first day of classes, will automatically have their room cancelled.
In the event that you need to defer your studies, you must notify us that you will not be arriving to take possession of your room.
If you do not arrive by the first day of classes, your room will automatically be cancelled. No refunds will be processed.
