Applying to Residence: Exchange Students

To accommodate the various and growing number of student exchange programs in place at Laurier, a limited number of residence beds are reserved for exchange students. The accommodations for exchange students are single rooms within an apartment-style residence.

If you are interested in living in residence, you may apply by completing the online residence application. You must submit your completed residence application to the Residence office no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 30, 2017.

Login Information for the Online Residence Application

You will need to use your Laurier network login username and password to access the online application system.

Residence Deposit

You will not be required to submit the $600 residence deposit with your application. However, if you cancel your application after the June 30 deadline, a charge of $600 will be placed on your Laurier student account.

Terms of Your Residence Contract

In completing the residence application, you will be agreeing to the terms and conditions contained within the Residence Hall Agreement. This agreement will outline the length of your residence contract.

If you are successful in obtaining a space in residence, you must stay in residence for the entire period of time for which you have applied. This could be the fall term (September to December), the winter term (January to April) or both fall and winter terms (September to April), as indicated on your residence application.

If you choose to leave residence before the end of the agreed-to occupancy period, you are still responsible for the full fees for your assigned residence room for the entire occupancy period.

You are strongly advised to consider the financial implications of this decision before accepting the terms of the Residence Hall Agreement and committing to live in residence. In previous years, some exchange students have been able to arrange less costly private accommodations in the community, and prefer to live there.

Meal Plans

If you receive a space in residence, you are required to participate in a mandatory apartment-style meal plan.

Moving In

Your residence room assignment letter, including your move-in date, will be emailed in early August.
