Apply

All students wishing to live in residence must apply before each academic year. Whether you are a first-year student, returning student or transferring from another university, we have a spot for you.

Application deadline: May 15

Student application details

  1. Both incoming and returning University of New Brunswick (UNB) students must use the online residence application to apply for residence for the upcoming year.

    • New students can apply once receiving admission, while returning students may do so mid-semester during the winter term.

    • Graduate and law students must select “Graduate Degree” under “Level of Study” on the application.

  2. Pay the $500 residence application fee: credits and scholarships on student accounts will not automatically be used to pay for the Residence Application Fee. Please inform UNB Financial Services if you wish to use an existing credit or if you submitted an online payment to UNB as these can take additional time to process.  Payments received by UNB can be viewed through the financial statement available in your student eServices portal.
  3. Once we receive your residence application and you have paid your application fee we will assign you your residence and room number. All students who submit their application and fee by May 15 are guaranteed a place in residence.
  4. If you are a returning student, you may apply for your preferred room type. Please indicate on your online residence application if you are requesting a single room and also if you are willing to move to a different residence in order to be assigned to a single room.

    • Since the number of single rooms on campus is limited, all returning students who apply for one will be ranked according to the following formula:

    • GPA + ((Years in University + Years in Residence)/2) = Points

    • Please note: if you have documented medical or special needs you may be given priority for single rooms, independent of this point system.
