Transfer and Off-Campus Students

If you are transferring from another college or university (and have advanced academic standing) you may apply to live in any campus residence.

Transfer Students who are starting their first year at the University of Guelph, and have never lived in residence at Guelph in a previous program, are guaranteed a space in residence , provided that the application and deposit are received by June 3, 2019.  The Residence Application can be completed online beginning February 1, 2019.

How to Apply

  • Read the Residence Contract before you complete your residence application.
  • Complete the online residence application and submit your $750 residence deposit to Residence Admissions.

Wait List

If you are a transfer student applying after June 3, you will be placed on the wait list until all the first year residents are assigned.

If you have extenuating circumstances and feel you should not be on the wait list, you can initiate a Wait List appeal. Email and attach your supporting documentation.
