First-year and single rooms
If you request a single room as your first preference, your name will be added to a lottery for one of the available rooms. If you do not receive a single room in the draw, your name will be added to a waitlist based on the lottery. Students that receive a University of Calgary Prestige Scholarship Award will be offered a single room, if a single room was their first preference.
Apartments and suites
Second-year, upper-year, transfer, international, and graduate students can chose their building and room online when applying for either the Academic or Fall Term. You will be sent a time slot (a specific date and time) in your Offer of Residence. On that date, you will have access to select your room in the Resident Portal. For details, check out the FAQ's.
Spring/Summer Term and Winter Term
There are a limited number of units available during these terms, therefore, room selection is not offered. Apartments are assigned to on a first-come, first-served basis. The specific room availability will be included in your Offer of Residence.
Family Housing Townhouses
Townhouses are assigned to applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. There is currently a wait list. Applications are added to the wait list according to the date and time they were received. Wait-times vary depending on availability and applicants’ preferred move-in dates. When a townhouse is available, the Family Housing Office will contact you, usually about one month in advance.
