Forms of Payment

 

Application Fee and Advance Payment

The $50 application fee and the advance payment ($1000 first-year & $500 non-first year) are to be paid by credit card through the application.

 

Residence Fees

Online payments will take up to seven days to show up in your Resident Portal. We will not charge late fees for anyone that pays on or prior to the payment deadline. Late fees will not be posted until seven days after the payment deadline.

Residence charges are separate from Academic charges on your account. With Canadian online banking, residence and academic charges need to be paid separately through specific banking payees.    

Canadian students:

  • Online banking
    •  
    • Log in to your personal Canadian bank's online portal
    • Search "University of Calgary Residence" as a payee. Note: the payee must include “Residence” for residence charges to be paid correctly.
    • UCalgary account number which is your 8 digit UCID followed by the First 5 letters of the Student's Last Name e.g. 12345678Examp.  If your last name is less than 5 letters only include your student number and full last name 
    • Please note it may take up to 5 days for the funds to appear on your residence charges
    • If you have paid funds to your fees to tuition charges instead of residence, you will need to submit a "My Service Request" through your Student Centre to have the funds transferred to Residence charges as this does not occur automatically.  This transfer will take up to 10 business days for funds to appear transferred residence charges.
