Residence Fees

Johnston Hall Double Room

Residence Fees

Fees are established in the spring of each year through the Board of Governors for the following academic year cycle.

The fees listed below are inclusive of the $750 residence deposit, which is applied to the Winter semester fees. For example, if the Winter semester fee is $4000, you would pay $3250 in the winter semester, provided that the $750 deposit was paid in full.


Income Tax Receipts

All University of Guelph residences are designated residences for property tax and rent purposes, meaning that residence fees cannot be claimed as rent payments on income tax returns. The only claim that is allowed is $25 for the year (with no receipt necessary). For this reason, the University does not issue tax receipts for residence fees.
