Applications for On-Campus Housing are accepted at any point during the year. You can apply before being accepted, as a student, to Memorial University. It is never "too early" to apply for housing. You will be notified when your application has been received and is on file with the department. Admission and re-admission to residence is based on several factors, including responsible behaviour and potential to contribute to the quality of student life, and suitability of the environment.
Applicants who have been accepted to On-Campus Housing will be sent an Offer of Accommodations. Offers of Accommodations must be completed and returned to Housing, Food and Conference Services before the indicated deadline.
An Offer of Accommodations must be accompanied by a deposit/confirmation fee of $500. This deposit will be credited toward your residence fees. Failure to cancel an Offer of Accommodations before the indicated deadline will result in the forfeiture of the residence deposit/confirmation fee.
The Housing Agreement
All students living on campus are required to sign our Housing Agreement
(Download Adobe Reader Free), which is a legally binding agreement between Memorial University and the student. The Agreement outlines the terms and conditions of occupancy, fees, food services, etc.
Students are strongly advised to make themselves aware of all the conditions set forth in the Agreement.
The Director of Housing, Food and Conference Services, and/or delegate, has the authority to financially charge residents for violations of the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
All residents have the right to appeal any charge levied for violations of the terms and conditions of the Agreement. More information on the HFCS appeals process is available here.
