Summer Residence

Would you like to live on campus during the summer? Maybe you got a job in the City of Guelph or on campus? Are you on a co-op term for the summer semester? Perhaps you’re taking summer courses or doing research. Any registered University of Guelph student can apply.

We have rooms in the East Village Townhouses and the University Houses available over the summer.

Why live in residence in the summer?

Here are the top five benefits:

1. Convenience of living on-campus - you'll be close to everything you need!

2. Affordable one-semester contracts.

3. Residences are safe and secure.

4. Academically supportive environment.

5. Beautiful campus (our campus looks its best during the summer months!)

Want to stay for the entire Summer semester?  APPLY ONLINE through the Housing Portal. 

If you want a shorter stay, check the SUMMER HOSTEL section.

The RESIDENCE CONTRACT is extremely important: please read it carefully!

The online application for Summer Residence will open on February 1. A deposit is not required when you apply for Summer residence.
