  • Can be mailed directly to Brock. Please address the envelope as follows: Brock Central, 3rd floor Schmon Tower, 1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way, St. Catharines, ON L2S 3A1.  *** DUE TO COVID-19 THIS METHOD IS VERY SLOW.  Online banking is the most efficient method of payment.***


  • Indicate to the teller that you wish to make a $600-payment to Brock University.
  • The account number is your seven-digit student ID number. If your bank requires a longer account number, please add zeros in front of the student ID number until you reach the minimum length needed.


  • Add “Brock University Tuition and Residence” as a payee to your banking software
  • The account number is your seven-digit student ID number, if your bank requires a longer account number, please add zeros in front of the student ID number until you reach the minimum length needed.
  • Make the payment as you would with any other bill through online banking.

For international students, please see payment options through Western Union Global Pay that we recommend.

The deadline for receipt of the $600-application fee is Monday, June 1, 2021.

We will process all applications as soon as we receive the application fee payment but we will give priority in the assigning process to those who meet our deadline. We strongly recommend that you keep a copy of confirmation of your payment, for example, save a copy of the confirmation screen if you are paying by online banking, or keep the deposit slip if you pay at your bank.

Visit these pages if you are cancelling or withdrawing early before move-in or after move-in.

Your residence agreement outlines these in detail.

Students must pay a $600-application fee when they apply in order for their application to be processed. If the student lives in residence for that year, the $600 will be taken off their final residence fee payment. The next payment is the first instalment, which is due July 31. The remaining residence fees will be due in September with tuition fees.

Because online banking and wire transfers often take a few business days to be received, your best option would be to bring a cheque to campus.  ***DUE TO COVID-19 BRINGING A CHEQUE TO CAMPUS IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE.***

You can pay your first installment fee using the methods of payment accepted by Brock.

The first installment fee is for residence and your meal plan. The meal plan is mandatory for all residences and has automatically been added to the first installment amount.

No, OSAP will not be in your account until September. That’s why we have a reduced first installment. OSAP rarely covers 100 percent of your university fees so you have to make this payment on your own.

Students who do not make a first instalment payment will be subject to interest charges and may have their residence room offer revoked.

Yes, you can. You can check your financial history by going to the Applicant and Student Self Serve tab on the Brock Portal. When your payment is received, you will see the credit, which will show as ($600) on your student account. Please note: university charges to your account will appear as debits.

All residence fees must be paid to Brock University’s Finance Department. View our payment options.  In addition, students may visit Brock Central during posted office hours to make payments.

No, Brock does not accept payment by credit card.

Please visit Student Awards and Financial Aid. You can use the Fee Estimator to determine costs associated with a year at university.

If you have a confirmed OSAP assessment for more than $12,000 then you qualify for the $2,000-reduced first instalment. Your finance history and fee calculator will not be updated to reflect this amount if the assessment comes in after we have loaded the first assessment charges. We will work with Student Awards and Financial Aid as well as the Finance office to ensure qualified students are not charged interest for paying the reduced amount.

Absolutely. Any credits on your student account, including entrance scholarships and awards, can be put toward your first instalment payment.

The consequences of a missed payment will depend on which payment is missed, how much you owe on your student account overall, and time of the year. The Finance Department outlines potential consequences of overdue accounts.
