Undergraduate College Residences

Living on campus presents an affordable opportunity for undergraduate students to experience a diverse community and make lifelong friends while being conveniently situated at the center of social, cultural and academic life, with a wide array of campus services at their doorstep.

York has approximately 1,800 beds available for undergraduate students across seven buildings on the Keele campus. Most residences are arranged in a traditional style with comfortably furnished double and single rooms, and shared common lounges and washrooms. Students will purchase a mandatory meal plan that can be used at over 30 food outlets on campus offering a wide selection of food types. York also has some limited space available in suite-style units where groups of four to six students share a small kitchen, living area, and private washrooms. Residence costs will vary according to accommodation styles, however students should roughly estimate $5,200 for a typical arrangement of a double occupancy room that includes a meal plan.

All undergraduate students are welcome to apply for residence as long as they enrol in and plan to remain in a minimum of 24 credits or four full courses. The undergraduate residence application and information package will be included with your offer of admission to York.

Students who apply are encouraged to complete and return their application as soon as possible to improve their chances of receiving a room offer since the demand for residence will exceed the space available. Offers of a space will be guaranteed to students who are scholarship winners with an overall average of 85% and higher who apply by the given deadline.
