Student Residence Information
If you are a student who requires accommodation related to accessibility, it is important that you register with Accessibility Services as soon as possible.
Most first years are assigned to a shared double room. We make every effort to accommodate a preference for a specific roommate. Both applicants must indicate the other on their applications. To find a compatible roommate, we consider the lifestyle information section of your application. Our priority is first-year students who receive the housing guarantee. 65% of our beds are allocated to first-year students.
Room assignments are emailed mid July.
Residence and Meal plan fees are posted to ACORN mid August.
As a returning residence student you will have the option of self selecting your room. If you are requesting a double room you will need to find your own roommate. A 10% discount is offered to eligible upper-year students.
Please be aware that space is not always available in the residence or floor of your choice. You must have an AGPA of at least 2.0 for the 2019–2020 academic year and the balance on your ACORN must be paid in full by the end of classes in April.
All students who decide to live in residence are required to purchase a meal plan from the following selection.

When it opened in 1903, Annesley Hall was the first residence built specifically for women in Canada. It was renovated in 1988 and houses female students in single, double and triple rooms. Annesley is known for its close-knit community and for the fact that no two rooms are the same.
Margaret Addison Hall
This co-ed residence for both first-year and upper-year students has double and single rooms. It features music practice rooms, study areas, kitchenettes and six common rooms.
Rowell Jackman Hall
Due to their architecture and age, our residences can be challenging living environments for students with accessibility needs. In 1993 Rowell Jackman Hall was built in accordance with the accessibility standards of the time, but even it no longer meets some current accessibility requirements.
Our suite-style residence offers single-sex and co-ed housing options. Each suite houses three to seven students in single and double rooms. The suites have common rooms, one or two washrooms, shared kitchen facilities and a living room. This residence is home to primarily upper-year students, although some first-year students are also housed in double rooms.
Some suites are designed to accommodate residents with accessibility needs, and the building is wheelchair-accessible from the parkade level.
Upper Burwash Hall
The Upper Houses of Burwash Hall (North, Middle, South and Gate) are co-ed and house first-year and upper- year students in single and double rooms. Each floor has a kitchenette and small eating area. Each floor has a common room with cable TV. Washrooms are co-ed.
Lower Burwash Hall
The Lower Houses of Burwash Hall (Ryerson, Nelles, Caven, and Bowles-Gandier) were constructed in 1931, and renovations were completed in November of 1995. Students are housed in single, double, and triple rooms with semi-private washrooms. Rooms on the first three floors of each house have individual sleeping alcoves with adjoining study/sitting rooms. Each floor has a kitchenette. Each house has a common room with cable TV.
