4. Apply for residence housing

York's residences are more than places to live. They are vibrant communities where students learn, grow and develop, and make friends that will last a lifetime. More than 4,000 students (1,600 are in first year) live at York in our ten undergraduate residences (eight on Keele campus, two on Glendon). Learn more about Housing at York.

Residence Guarantee — for September (Fall) entry

Residence at our Keele and Glendon campuses is guaranteed to first-year students admitted directly from a full-time secondary school who meet the housing application deadline on June 1. We will, however, continue to accept applications throughout the summer as long as spaces are available.

Submit your application for residence online through MyFile.

For up-to-the-minute details about on-campus housing and residence living, visit the Housing website.

  • You can apply for residence as long as you enrol as a full-time undergraduate student.
  • Offers of residence will begin in mid-June.

If you are not coming to York directly from a full-time secondary school program, you can also apply for residence. Students who are 21 years of age or older are eligible to apply for York University's apartment housing.
