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

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.

Offer dates

1st Round: July 3, 2020

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 $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My offer to Ryerson was revoked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.
