Room Types

There are 10 undergraduate residence buildings – 8 at the Keele Campus and 2 at the Glendon Campus, each with approximately 250 students.

Most residences are traditional-style buildings including double and single room options, with shared common washrooms and lounge areas that are designed for first-year students; there are limited suite-style residences, typically shared by 2 to 6 students, with ensuite kitchens and shared washrooms. These are a preferred option for upper-year students who want to live in smaller groups, have an optional Meal Plan, and share amenities. York residences offer mixed and single gender options. Adapted and wheelchair accessible rooms are also available within most of the undergraduate buildings but have to be requested on the application.


Rooms are furnished with a twin bed, desk, chair, dresser, garbage bin and lamp. Wired and wireless high-speed Internet access is available in all rooms. Students can subscribe to cable TV and phone services for an additional fee.
