Note: Upper-year residence will not be offered for the 2021-22 academic year. Uncertainty associated with COVID-19 and the rollout of vaccines has added a level of complexity to our planning. In order to honour our residence guarantee to the incoming first-year class, we are unable to accept upper-year residence applications at this time.

Relive your residence experience independently! Alumni House and London Hall are suite-style residences designed for upper-year student living set with a kitchen and living room. Upper-year students can opt to live in any of our other residences as well if they choose, or become a student leader.

Independent Living

You know what to expect from university now, but that doesn’t mean residence is only for first timers! Living on campus means you’re close to your classes, campus services, and co-curricular activities. Alumni House offers easy access to Richmond Row or even Masonville Mall. London Hall is just steps away from the Western Recreation Centre. Even if you try to avoid cooking at all costs or would rather utilize a kitchen, the choice is yours since the meal plan is optional in our upper-year buildings!

Building Assignments are First-Come, First-Served

You’ll still rank your building choices, but this time, the sooner you apply, the greater chance you’ll get your first choice! Applications open around November, so hurry to the myHousing Portal before spots fill up.

Quiet Study Spaces

The ease of having your classmates living alongside you is a benefit you’ve already experienced in first year, but in our upper-year buildings, we have great study spaces and this independent living style boasts quieter floors.

Live With Your Friends, and Make New Ones!

You’ve met lots of people in first year, so why not continue living alongside them in this apartment style? Whether you have in mind exactly who you want to live with or not, our new online residence booking system has it covered. You can choose your residence building, live with your friends, and reserve your specific suite.

Leadership Opportunities

Become a mentor for incoming first year students while boosting your resume at the same time! We have more than 400 leadership positions in residence that will teach you valuable skills and provide great training opportunities. Don’t believe us? See what our previous student leaders have to say for themselves!
