Thank you for considering residence at the University of Guelph for your graduate studies.
Student Housing Services reserves some of its buildings -- University Houses and 3-person townhouses in West Residences -- for use by graduate students.
Residence living doesn't just mean you are living on campus - it means you are living in campus, in proximity to all academic needs and services. This convenience provides more time and support to focus on your studies.
Applying for Graduate Housing
Graduate Housing fees are due at the beginning of each semester. Utilities are included, however, you have to arrange for and pay for telephone, internet, and cable television.
