Residence FAQ

Applications for the upcoming academic year are made available in February/March of the current academic year. You can apply for the Canadore Residence by filling out our online application. Applications will be accepted at any time on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Academic Year Acceptances: 
Students are encouraged to apply for residence by May 1st. Guaranteed residence is available for any student who applies with a completed application with a security deposit before May 1. Acceptances will be sent on a first come, first serve basis thereafter.

Winter and Summer Semester Acceptances: 
Acceptance emails will be sent on a first-come, first-serve basis dependent upon room availability during the Winter and Summer Semesters.

In the acceptance email you will receive instructions on how to complete the rest of your acceptance information online. The acceptance details will need to be completed online and will ask you important information related to emergency contacts, health information, payment information, and a personality profile questionnaire which is used to help select your roommate. You will also be asked to review and accept the Student Residence Agreement which is a legal document that serves as the contract between you and the Residence. Please ensure that you read it carefully and keep a copy for your records.

Primary and Secondary Contacts serve as an emergency contact and as a main contact should any other significant concerns or problems arise with the resident. It is strongly recommended that these contacts are the parents or legal guardians of the resident. In the case where the Primary contact is unavailable, the Secondary contact will be contacted.

Please provide your details on the Medical, Accessibility, and Special Consideration section when completing your acceptance information in order to provide us with more information about how we can support your success in Residence. Students requiring special accommodations on campus are encouraged to also contact Canadore College’s Student Success Services.

If you are not completing your acceptance information online, please contact the Residence directly for the "Request for Special Consideration Form" to provide us with more information so we can support your success in Residence.
