Housing for Graduate Students

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 and internet are included, however, you have to arrange for and pay for telephone and television services.

The residence deposit will be credited toward your Winter semester fee payment. It will not appear on your student account until your Winter fees are posted.

Please note that while we will do our best to accommodate your request to return to a specific unit, we are unable to offer any guarantee to return to a particular University House or West Residence location.


Read the Residence Contract before you complete your Residence Application and submit your $750 residence deposit to Residence Admissions.
