Reopening CUE for the 2020-21 Academic Year


Important Update from Residence Life

To prevent the further spread of COVID-19, our student residences will remain closed for the duration of the fall semester. We are all responsible for the health and safety of our community and while this decision was extremely difficult, it is necessary to protect our community.

However, we are pleased to offer seven bedrooms in private rentals located steps from campus. These bedrooms are available exclusively to students who will be studying in Edmonton this fall, and are available now For more information, please click here or contact residence@concordia.ab.ca.

While our residences remain closed, we are prepared to provide support to students looking to secure off-campus housing. Please visit our Off-Campus Housing website for more information.

We look forward to welcoming you back home to our residences when it is safe to do so, and we thank you for your patience. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with your questions of concerns – we are here to help.
