Planning to Live on Campus? You need to read this!
One of the most exciting – or stressful – elements for many university-bound students is moving into an on-campus residence. We know this because the Student Housing portion of our Campus Tours has always prompted many questions from both students and parents. While we continue to miss showcasing our campus and residence options in-person during the COVID-19 restrictions, we’re happy to offer a few virtual resources to help you explore the options as you begin thinking about
- Visit Student Housing’s Room Tour Videos page or YouTube to watch virtual tours of residences and room types.
- Check out residence room floor plans on the Student Housing Services website.
- Experience the University of Guelph’s 360° residence room tour online.
Ready to apply to live in Student Housing?
Once you’ve received an offer admission to U of G, along with your central login and/or your U of G ID#, you can head to the Student Housing application page and follow the instructions to submit your $750 deposit and application. It’s also important to keep in mind that residence assignments are decided by lottery, and that applications must be submitted by June 1, 2021.
A Message from Student Housing
At this time, we are not able to confirm if we will be able to extend our Residence Guarantee to all new first year students. Due to the dynamic and evolving nature of COVID-19 and the provincial response, we will continue to update our communication once we have better information about our residence capacity.
Residence for Fall 2021 may look a bit different than you may expect due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, no decisions have been made at this time about online and hybrid classes, single rooms, and residence assignment locations. But rest assured, our goal still remains focused on making your campus residence experience safe, fun and supportive of your academic success.
All students and all student residence contracts are subject to the University’s COVID protocols which may be amended from time to time and on short notice. Failure by a student to abide by any COVID protocol could be grounds for student discipline or immediate termination of a student residence contract or both.
