Room assignments

When are offers sent out?:

  • If you have received an offer of promised housing as part of your Concordia acceptance letter, you have until May 15th to submit your application to retain your guarantee of a room offer. 
  • Offers will start going out to promised applicants by the middle of March.
  • We will send out room offers to applicants without promised housing only after May 15th. 
  • 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 

Students who are offered a room

  • Payment of a $800.00 room confirmation fee 
  • Purchase of the residence meal plan which is $4300 in total for 8-month residents and $2150 for 4-month exchange or winter session only residents.

Room offers include

  • Building, room type, and cost
  • Deadline by which date payments must be made
  • Cancellation clause

*Note that the offer will only be for a room type at this point, not a specific room*
