How to Apply for On-Campus Housing as a First-year Arts & Science Student


1. Explore your residence options.

As a Faculty of Arts and Science student, you are a member of one of seven academic colleges.

  • To learn more about belonging to one of Canada's most unique academic and social university communities visit the Discover U of T website.

When ranking the colleges on your OUAC application it is important to note that Arts & Science residence offers come from either your college residence or Chestnut Residence.
 
Don't forget to review the features of the different residences and explore the residence comparison chart.
 

2. Confirm your interest in residence on MyRes.

You must confirm your interest in residence by completing the University’s common residence application, MyRes. In order to qualify for the Residence Guarantee, this step must be completed by March 31, 2014.

If you haven't already, you must first enable your JOIN/UTORid that was included in your acknowledgment letter. Once enabled, you can use your UTORid to logon to MyRes.


3. Rank your residence choices on MyRes.

Once you have been admitted to U of T, you must log back in to MyRes and rank your residence choices. In order to maintain the Residence Guarantee, this step must be completed within two weeks of receiving your offer to U of T.
 

4. Complete any supplementary applications as indicated on MyRes.

Some of the residences will require you to complete their supplementary applications once you save your rankings on MyRes. This step is crucial in order for your application to be considered.  
 

5. What happens next?

We encourage you to login to MyRes frequently to check the status of your application.
 
If you meet the criteria of the Residence Guarantee you will usually receive a residence offer (via the email address you have registered on ROSI) within one month of receiving an offer of admission to U of T. If you have not received an offer by mid-June, please contact your college residence office.
 
If you do not meet the requirements of the Residence Guarantee you will only be considered for residence after all guaranteed students have received residence offers. As residence space is often very limited for non-guaranteed students, it is highly recommended that you also investigate off-campus housing.
 
If you receive a residence offer, make sure to follow the instructions provided, and pay special attention to any deposits and deadlines. Students who qualify for the Residence Guarantee must respond to all deadlines and meet all deposit requirements in order to maintain their eligibility. The residence's office will be able to answer any specific questions you may have about their facilities and room allocation.
 
Please note: You will only receive one residence offer per program.
