Exchange Students

As the exchange program resumes in Fall 2021, limited housing accommodations will be available to exchange students on a first come first served basis. For more information, contact housing.residences [at]

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.
