Residence Room Assignments

Room Assignments are based on the information you provide in your Residence Application. Whenever possible you will be placed with a roommate who matches your preferences regarding neatness, sleeping patterns, study habits, etc. If you and a friend wish to share a double room, please indicate this in your application. You are welcome to identify one or more friends you would like to have as housemates (Epworth Houses) or apartment-mates (King's Commons). Every attempt is made to accommodate location and roommate preferences; however, these cannot be guaranteed.


We invite Canadian students to further enrich their residence experience by sharing a room with a student from another country. Choosing this option is a great way to broaden your world view and learn about another culture.
