How to Apply for On-Campus Housing

Apply Early!

It is never 'too early' to apply for On-Campus Housing. Applications for On-Campus Housing are accepted at any point during the year. You can even apply before being accepted, as a student, to Memorial University.

If you are interested in family housing please complete the following application form.

Admission and Readmission

We have a multiple priority process for admission and readmission to On-Campus Housing. All applicants must be at least 16 years of age before moving into our residences. While our residences are supervised by the Residence Life staff, Memorial University does not provide custodianship for any students.

Applicants enrolling in Memorial directly from secondary school (e.g. High School, etc.) are granted first priority on a first-come, first-served basis. All other enrolling students are granted second priority for accommodations.

Admission and readmission is also based on several factors, including responsible behaviour, your potential to positive contributions to the quality of student life, and the suitability of the residential environment.

** Please note that application for January 2015 and acceptance into Paton College, Macpherson College, or Burtons Pond DOES NOT automatically guarantee you a bed space for either facility in September 2015. All students must apply separately and specifically for Fall 2015.**

Offer of Accommodations

Applicants who have been accepted to On-Campus Housing will be sent an Offer of Accommodations. Your Offer of Accommodations must be completed and returned to Housing, Food and Conference Services before the deadline stated on your Offer.


Your Offer of Accommodations must be accompanied by a deposit of $500. This deposit will be credited toward your residence fees. Failure to cancel your Offer of Accommodations before the indicated deadline will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

The Accommodations Agreement

All students living on campus are required to accept our Occupancy Agreement, which is a legally binding agreement between Memorial University and our residents. The Agreement outlines the terms and conditions of occupancy, fees, food services, etc.

During the summer you will be sent a link with instructions on where and how to review and accept your Agreement.

We strongly recommend that you read the Accommodations Agreement carefully and familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions.
