Applications for the 2020-2021 Academic Year are open
Thank you so much for your interest in the Residence Life Experience. We are proud of our program and excited about adding new members to our community. In order to maintain the integrity of our program we carefully screen all applicants.
Students apply for admission to CUE’s residence separately from academic admission. Residence is limited and is granted on a contract basis for the full academic year (September-April) or on a semesterly basis (September-December, January-April).
STEP 1: Reading Material
Before you complete the application material, we ask that you review the draft Residence Guide & sample Residence Contract. These documents outline the philosophy and guidelines of our residence life program. We welcome your application and would like you to be aware of the full scope of our program before applying.
These documents can be found on the Residence Forms page for both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 years. You are responsible for reviewing these documents. The conditional acceptance we send out (Step 4) later in the year will include these documents.
STEP 2: Complete Application
Complete the online application.
It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. We are proud to be one of the few Canadian schools that do not charge an application fee.
Spots in residence are offered on a first-come first-serve basis. It is recommended that you apply early.
STEP 3: Personal Interview (If Required)
We may contact you for a personal interview if there are further questions regarding your residence application.
STEP 4: Acceptance to Residence
Once we have received all the necessary forms and conducted an interview (if necessary), we will inform you that you have been conditionally accepted into the residence program.
All residence communication is conducted through the email address you have provided on your residence application. If you have a Concordia University of Edmonton email address, you should provide this email.
Once conditionally accepted, your space in the residence will be reserved for a limited amount of time. In order to confirm your space in residence, you must pay a $500 Residence Experience Deposit and sign/return the Residence Contract included with your letter of Conditional Acceptance. Priority may be given to applicants residing outside the Greater Edmonton Area.
Returning students will have their deposit carried over from the previous year.
