Receiving an Offer

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


If there are more applicants than there are available spaces in residence, students will be placed on the waiting list in order of their priority.

Offers are sent every two or three weeks from the first round during the summer. After summer offers, weekly offers throughout the school year will be made to students on the waiting list as spaces become available.

Students will only receive one residence offer per residence application.

The offer will contain:

When you move into residence you will find out your specific room number.


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, external link and choosing decline. You will not be refunded the $50 application fee. To cancel an application that has not yet received an offer, please visit Application Cancellations.

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 preferences if possible. We can only make one offer per residence application; 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 $50 application fee.

My offer to Ryerson was revoked

As long as a student emails within five (5) business days of being notified of their revoked status by Ryerson, the residence offer will be cancelled and any fees, except the non-refundable $50 application fee, will be refunded.

Application Cancellations

We understand that sometimes a situation may arise where a student may need to cancel their application to residence. To cancel your residence application you can either withdraw the application in the residence application portal, eRezLife, external link, or you can email with your full name and student number, letting us know you wish to cancel.

Please note: The $50 application fee is a non-refundable fee for cancellations.

If your Ryerson acceptance has been revoked, email within five (5) business days of being notified of the revoked status, the residence offer will be removed and the $50 application fee will be refunded.
