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 coming directly from high school and 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.
