NOTE: Indicating interest in Residence on your OUAC application does not mean you have applied for residence. There is a separate application process for residence. You should complete and submit our on-line application. It should go live in mid to late January. Students do not need to accept their offer to Brock before submitting a residence application.

This is the first date that we will accept payment of the $600 residence application fee.


Residences open for Spring/Summer students.

If you have money in an RESP, make inquiries about how long it will take to get the money out. Some companies require quite a lot of notice of withdrawal. If you are planning on applying for OSAP we also recommend doing so now. Please note that the first installment of residence fees are due July 31.

Deadline for receipt of online residence application and $600 application fee in order to qualify for the residence guarantee. Applications received after this date will then be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
