HOUSING


On campus

Home is never far away when you live in residence. You’ve got great options on both campuses.

You can apply for housing once you receive an Offer of Admission for your program. Spaces are limited, so submit your application as soon as possible.

You may be eligible for a guaranteed a spot in residence if you are a first-year, full-time student coming to university right after high school, and you live at least 50 kilometres from Montreal. To secure your spot, you must apply to live on campus by May 15.

Applications for all other students opens May 16.

Keep in mind, once you receive an offer of housing, you must make pay two payments by June 1, 2019: a confirmation fee ($825) and the meal plan in full ($4430).

 


Applying to live on campus

You must first be granted conditional or final admission to Concordia.

  1. Once you've been accepted at Concordia, go to My Student Centre. If you are eligible to live in residence, you’ll see an item called “Apply for Housing (eRez)” under "Admissions." Make sure your pop-up blocker is turned off so the payment screen can pop up.
  2. Pay the non-refundable $100 application fee by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Interac.
  3. If you’d like to share a room with a friend, create a “roommate group” by entering your friend’s full name and student ID number. If you don’t have a roommate in mind, we’ll ask you a series of questions designed to find a good match. Under “My Application,” find “View Status.” Click on “Accept or Decline Offer.” 

Click “save and exit” at any point to finalize your residence application later.

Off campus

An excellent transit system links Concordia to most neighbourhoods on the island of Montreal. Each neighbourhood has its own unique flavour. Part of the fun is finding a spot that captures your imagination and fits with your budget.

Montrealers have their own way of describing the size of an apartment. 

     1 ½: studio apartment, i.e., one large room with a bathroom and kitchenette
     3 ½: kitchen, living room, one bedroom, bathroom
     4 ½: kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, bathroom
     5 ½: kitchen, living room, three bedrooms, bathroom

Many apartments do not include the cost of heating and hot water. Some apartments do not come with appliances (stove, refrigerator, etc.). In that case, you will need to bring or buy your own.

July 1 is traditionally the most popular day to move in Quebec, meaning you may be competing with a lot of other apartment-seekers. But you’ll also have more choice, since that’s when the majority of apartments become available.
