Housing & Residence

 

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University is functioning virtually. Housing & Residence Office staff are working remotely and dealing with an exceptionally high volume of email at this time. As such, response times may be longer than normal. We ask that you refrain from sending multiple follow-up emails. We appreciate your patience! Be well. 

 

While the University has now confirmed all classes will be online / virtual this Fall, we can confirm that residence / on-campus housing will be is available for the fall term starting in September.

 

Individuals who have already confirmed a space in residence by paying the $500 residence confirmation deposit and returning a signed residence agreement are still able to live on campus starting in September 2020. Additional information about living in residence here at Saint Mary’s, including details on our move-in process, information on residence life programming for the coming year, and details of our on-campus food service provision, will be provided in the near future.

 

If you wish to defer your residence bed space confirmation for a January 2021 arrival / move-in based on the University’s move to virtual / online classes, you may request to do by emailing residence.housing@smu.ca and advising Housing  & Residence staff that this is the case. These emails should include your full name and student number (A#).
