Approximately 75% of rooms in residence are allocated to first year students and approximately 25% are allocated to returning residents. When a first year student cancels their room offer, this space is filled by a student on the first year wait list, and when a returning resident cancels their room offer, this space is filled by a student on the returning student wait list. This also applies to Guelph-Humber students.
When students receive the Offer of Admission package, they will also find a Residence Application in their package. We STRONGLY ADVISE students to apply as early as possible because Residence can fill quickly. Offers of residency are sent out as applications are received on a first come, first served basis until the residence is full. After applying to residence, students will receive either an Offer of Residency or a Wait List notification. Students on the wait list who live more than 30km away from the campus where they will be studying will be given priority. Wait list updates are emailed out on a weekly basis to advise students of their wait list status. If a room becomes available, the Residence Office will contact the student using the email address provided on the Residence Application. The offer will be valid for 24 business hours, and if we do not receive a response, the room will be offered to the next person on the wait list.
Students who have studied at Humber but have not lived in residence in the past will be placed on the first year wait list.
Returning student applications are available on February 1. Applications must be received by February 28. The application will be scored based on the criteria set out in the application. By mid-March Returning Residents will receive either an offer of residency, a letter of decline or a wait list notification. If a room becomes available, the Residence Office will contact the student using the email address that provided on the Residence Returning Application. The offer will be valid for 48 hours, and if we do not receive a response, the room will be offered to the next person on the wait list.
If a student has circumstances which may warrant special consideration for being moved up the wait list, a wait list appeal may be submitted. There is no guarantee that a student will be moved up as we try to maintain a fair process based on date of application for residence and distance from the campus the student is attending. If the student has a medical condition which requires consideration to ensure their success at Humber or Guelph-Humber, Humber’s Disability Services will be asked to assess the situation and make a recommendation to Residences. Please complete this Appeal Form First, someone from the Residence Office will be in touch to advise of the next steps.
If you have circumstances which warrant exempting you from being placed on the waiting list, you are requierd to submit a waitlist appeal -- the online waitlist appeal form is now available here.
