NEW FIRST YEAR STUDENTS Fall 2015/Winter 2016

CONGRATULATIONS on your admission to the University of Guelph! The online Residence Application for New First Year students for the Fall 2015/Winter 2016 semester is currently OPEN. Applications and deposits received after June 1, 2015 are considered late and are not guaranteed placement.

At this time we anticipate that we will be able to assign additional late applicants on a first-come-first-served basis after June 1. Once your application and deposit are received, we will advise you on your placement status. Late applicants who cancel their Residence Contract while still on the Waiting List are entitled to a full refund of the residence deposit. However, if you cancel your application after we have confirmed that you will receive placement, you are subject to the forfeiture conditions of the Residence Contract.

To start your application, scroll to the bottom of this page and login to our online Residence Application Form. If you do not have your Central Login name and passed, you may use the alternate authentication credentials in lieu of your University of Guelph login. A central login and password will be mailed to you from Registrarial Services after you have accepted your Offer of Admission.

If you would like to view a tutorial ahead of time, you can watch our Residence Application walk-through video before you start your application.
