  • July 14, 2017: Fall 2017 Term (September - December 2017) Undergaduate Applications are now Closed:
    Applications for the Fall 2017 term are now closed due to being tentatively full. For those still seeking housing for the Fall 2017 term (September – December 2017), we strongly encourage you to continue looking outside of residence for the Fall 2017 term. Below are a few options for you. For more information including some options, Click Here.

  • July 14, 2017: Fall 2017 Term (September - December 2017) CCIC Graduate Applications are still Open:
    If you are a Graduate student seeking residence at our downtown Vancouver residence at the Charles Change Innovation Centre (CCIC), applications are still open.

  • Update on Undergraduate Waitlist Numbers: Students who have a completed housing application and are eligible for a housing offer are given a waitlist number that you can see on the housing portal.   The undergrad waitlist up until June 1, 2017 was comprised of one list that included all students.  It did NOT take into account your building eligibility.  We have since split our undergrad waitlists into two so that your waitlist number is now tied to your building eligibility.  Townhouse eligible applications are on one list.  Towers and Traditional Residences (Shell House & McTaggart-Cowan) eligible applicants are on another.  By doing this, your waitlist number should now better reflect your position in our offer queue.  Please note that housing offers will be made as rooms are made available.
  • Increased Residence Construction Activity: Residents should be aware that the SFU Residence area is currently undergoing increased construction activity, which has resulted in increased traffic, intermittent roadway and pathway closures and construction noise.  Please refer to the Residence Construction Updates page to view a map of the construction zones and updates on the various projects currently underway.
