2017-18 Living in residence

Important Dates for 2017-18


Applications for 2017-18 will be available online.

January 31, 2017

Deadline for returning students to participate in the “Pick Your Room” campaign. Applications for returning students will still be accepted after this date and assigned based on availability.

February 2017

Registrar’s Office begins to mail out offers of admission to incoming applicants (non-Brock students) with residence application information.

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. Students do not need to accept their offer to Brock before submitting a residence application.

April 4 2017

This is the first date that we will accept payment of the $600 residence application fee (except for Brock Suites applicants which are due upon application).

May/June 2017

If you have money in an RESP, make enquiries 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.

June 1, 2017

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.

Late-June 2017

Department of Residences e-mails residence building and room offers to successful applicants. Those not offered a spot at this time will have their name put on a waiting list and will be informed of their position on that list. They will also receive details of off-campus housing options.

July 31, 2017

Deadline for receipt of first installment payment. Fees can be viewed on the Residence Fees Page.
