Residence COVID-19 FAQ

Exchange Students

The exchange program has been suspended for Fall 2021 due to continued restrictions and barriers to international travel.

McGill Student Housing welcomes exchange students! Accommodations in our shared-facilities and studio apartments are based upon availability in our Upper Year Undergraduate and Undergraduate student residences. 

Housing will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

To accept your spot in McGill Student Housing simply:

·Log in to Minerva

·Read and accept the room reservation agreement;

·Tell us where you'd like to live by ranking your choices of accommodation (apartment or shared-facilities house);

·Tell us a little about yourself by filling out the questionnaire;

·Pay your room reservation deposit of $1000 (which will be credited towards your first month's rent) along with a $30 non-refundable application fee.

Shortly after the reply-by deadline, you will receive your hall confirmation.

Withdrawal penalties

Application for residences are accepted and accommodation is assigned based on the understanding that students are making a commitment for the full academic year. Upon acceptance into residences, students are committing to a lease under Québec law. Students who withdraw from McGill University Residences for either academic or non-academic reasons will be held financially responsible. See Cancellation Policies.
