Accommodation guarantee

For the September 2014 admissions cycle, McGill is pleased to guarantee residence accommodation to all newly admitted undergraduate students who are:

  • 22 years of age or under (on Sept 1), and
  • starting their first year of university studies, and
  • admitted to McGill University and have accepted that offer of admission prior to the residence confirmation deadline

All renewable and one-year McGill Entrance Scholarship awardees entering university in September 2014 will be guaranteed one of their top two choices of residence building, provided they apply by the residence application deadline of midnight, Montreal time, June 3rd. Should one of the smaller residence buildings fill up before all scholarship winners are placed in their first choice, scholarship awardees will be guaranteed their second choice of residence building.

Please note: students with guaranteed residence admission, including scholarship students, must pay their $1500 residence deposit along with a $30 residence application fee before midnight on June 3 (EST), in order to confirm their space in residence. See Room Reservation for more details.
