Living on Campus

Living in residence, you will develop lasting friendships and will have a variety of social and educational activities at your doorstep. Make the most of your York experience. Live on campus, get involved and become part of the vibrant and engaged community. Residence is more than just a place to live. It is the best way to take your academic and personal success to a higher level. For the total York Experience, York hope you choose to live in residence where together we learn, laugh and grow.

Late Applicants:  York cannot guarantee you a space in residence and you could be placed on a waiting list. Space will be offered as it becomes available throughout the summer, and priority will be given to first year students who live farthest away.

Living in one of York nine undergraduate residences - seven on the Keele campus and two at Glendon - means you're at the heart of the York community.

You should only apply to residences on your "home" campus e.g., if you are attending classes at the Keele Campus, apply for housing at the Keele campus. If you are attending classes at the Glendon campus, apply for housing at the Glendon campus.

Most of York residences are designed in a traditional style with comfortably furnished double and single rooms and access to common lounges and shared washrooms. At the Keele Campus there are also suite-style residences which feature ensuite kitchen and washrooms. Most buildings are co-ed, but some have all-female or all-male floors or sections. All of York residence buildings are smoke-free.

All residence rooms, on both campuses, provide wired Internet access and local telephone service (phone provided).
