Transfer and Off-Campus Students

Transfer Students

If you are transferring from another college or university (and have advanced academic standing) you may apply to live in any campus residence.

Transfer Students who are starting their first year at the University of Guelph, and have never lived in residence at Guelph in a previous program, are guaranteed a space in residence , provided that the application and deposit are received by June 1, 2020.  The Residence Application can be completed online beginning February 1, 2020.

How to Apply

Off Campus Students

If you are interested in returning to residence after living off campus you will be considered an off campus student. Off Campus students will automatically be placed on the upper year waiting list, which is set up on a first-come, first-served basis, so the earlier your application and deposit are received, the better.

Wait List

If you are a transfer student applying after June 1, you will be placed on the first year waiting list.

If you are an off campus student applying at anytime you will be placed on the upper year waiting list

If you have extenuating circumstances and feel you should not be on the waitlist, you can initiate a waitlist appeal. Email appeals@uoguelph.ca and attach your supporting documentation.
