Residence Guarantee

We do not guarantee residence for first-year students. When offering a space in residence, Ryerson University gives priority to first-year students traveling the furthest distance away from our campus.

You must complete a residence application form after accepting a Ryerson offer of admission. The first round of offers are made in mid-June. Offers continue to be made throughout the summer and school year until the waiting list is exhausted.

Deposit Required

A $400 application fee is required with your application. 

Meal Plans

Meal plan values operate on a debit system. The total value of the meal plans is as follows (subject to change and based on 2017-2018 academic year):

Blue: $3,605

Meal plans are mandatory in all residence buildings. You will receive half the total value of the meal plan in your first term, and the remaining half in the second term. The Light meal plan is available only for students assigned to Pitman Hall apartment-style.
