Who will be my roommate?

Once you have been assigned to your room, speak with your Admissions Counsellor and they will let you know when you will be able to hear about your future roommate.


When you submit your online housing application you will be placed in a residence room and are made available online in early August via your student portal. Please keep in mind, however, that some last-minute changes may occur and we cannot promise specific rooms to students prior to registration. Your keys will be available when you arrive on registration day.

When can I move in?

May I see my room before I move in?
