Residence Application

Whether living in our dormitories or in our townhouses, all of Algoma University’s residence options feature a private, single room (available only on our Sault Ste Marie Campus)

Rooms will be assigned based on the application date, deposit paid date and availability of the residence selected. At this time we do have a waitlist for residence accommodations.

While we do our best to accommodate all applicants, sometimes we receive more applications than we have rooms available. As spaces become available, an offer will be made, taking into consideration of the applicant’s preference. We will notify applicants through e-mail when a room becomes available and require an answer within two (2) business days. If we do not receive an email back within the time frame, we will move ahead and the next student on our list and your application will be cancelled. If we offer you a residence room and you decline because you would like another housing style, your application will be cancelled. If you find alternate housing and would like to cancel off the waiting list, please email Housing at [email protected]. Verbal or phone cancellations will not be accepted.

The waitlist will remain active throughout the year.
