Spring 2018 Housing Waitlist is Now Closed
The wait list is closed for Spring 2018 applications but vacancies during the term often occur so if you are still looking for housing during the term please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.
Space in Residence is limited. There is no guarantee that you will receive a Housing Offer. However, we continue accepting applications until every space in Residence has been accepted.
If you are waiting for an offer, you remain in the application queue until move-in day. If there is a cancellation before move-in, the next eligible student in the application queue will contacted with an offer.
When you apply to SFU Residences and pay your $50 deposit fee, you are automatically added to the housing waitlist. Throughout the room offering process, we continuoiusly send offers when space becomes available to the next eligible student in the application queue.
Prior to the 1st Day of Classes:
If you have applied on the housing portal and paid the $50 deposit then you will be automatically placed on the waitlist. Offers will be made to students on this waitlist as space becomes available until the 1st day of classes of the next term.
On the 1st Day of Classes
On the first day of classes, the application queue will be dissolved and a brand new waitlist for the undergrad residences will be activated. Students who were unable to obtain housing prior to the start of classes but still want a room in Residence must add their name to the new waitlist electronically.
