Living in Residence

*Please note that the following info will be updated in early September for prospective students interested in Spring/Summer or Fall 2022 residence.

Live and learn among students from both the University of Guelph-Humber and Humber. Residence facilities are located just a two-minute walk from the University. Humber manages the residences on campus, thus links to full residence information and the online registration will take you to web pages.

Applying to residence
You are eligible to apply to residence once you have received an offer of admission. Once you have received your offer of admission, register on the residence portal. Residence operates on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

*Priority for residence spaces for the 2021-22 Academic Year will be given to students who have courses delivered on site, or students who have been deemed to have exceptional circumstances. Students are encouraged to apply for residence as soon as possible, as our system tracks the order in which students submit their application, and spaces will be offered to eligible students in that order.
