Application Priority System

Below is the priority system used to determine the order that students are offered a space in residence:

Residence Application Priorities

  • 1st year students
  • Farthest distance from Ryerson

Typically there are more applicants than there are available spaces in residence. The remaining students will be placed on the waiting list in order of their priority. A lottery will be held to determine the waiting list placement for students with the same priorities.

Receiving a residence offer

The offer email will contain:


When you move into residence you will find out your specific room number, phone extension, and mailbox.

Declining a Residence Offer

I do not want a place in residence

If you have already been emailed an offer and choose to decline it you can do so by logging on to eRez and choosing decline. You will not be refunded the $400 application fee. To cancel an application that has not yet received an offer please visit Application Cancelations.

I don’t like the room type I was offered

We prioritize finding you a space in residence and then try to match your room choices if possible. We can only make one offer, if you chose to decline it and reapply with different room preferences you will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list and will not be refunded the $400 application fee.

My offer to Ryerson was revoked

As long as a student emails within five (5) business days of being notified of the revoked status by Ryerson, the residence offer will be cancelled and the $400 application fee will be refunded.
