1. WATCH FOR YOUR ROOM OFFER

Offers will be sent to your UAlberta email address, so be sure you are able to log in your University of Alberta email account. While you're there, add housing@ualberta.ca to your contact list to make sure your room offer shows up in your inbox.

If you've applied for the upcoming Fall Term, the first round of room offers will be sent out in May. Depending on availability and cancellations, room offers will continue to be made throughout the summer. The 2020 schedule is as follows:

  • Round 1: Thursday, May 21
  • Round 2: Thursday, June 11
  • Round 3: Thursday, July 2
  • Round 4: Thursday, July 23

Offers will continue to be sent out on an on-going basis after Round 4 as spaces become available.

If you've applied to Pinecrest House, Tamarack House, or Nîpisîy House for the upcoming Fall Term by January 31, you will receive a confirmation email by the end of February. This email will confirm your reserved residence, unit type, and requested roommates.

If you are not offered a room, you may be placed on a waiting list. To view your list position, sign in to your Residence Account, scroll to the name of the application that you used to apply and select "View your wait list position."

Waiting list positions will not be available until mid-to-late June.


2. COMPLETE YOUR CONFIRMATION CONTRACT

To accept your offered room, you will be required to complete a Confirmation Contract. The link to your Confirmation Contract will be sent to your University of Alberta email account. This link will include your Residence Agreement and other important information about living in residence. At this time you must complete your contract in full, pay your Residence Deposit and set up payments for your contract fees, if applicable. Most first round offers will require you to complete your confirmation process within a week; detailed instructions and deadlines will be included.

ROOMMATE REQUEST PRIORITIZATION
We prioritize correctly submitted roommate requests, so please ensure that you and your requested roommate(s) have: 

  1. Completed a residence application for the same residence and unit type.
  2. Requested each other by your 7-digit student identification numbers.
  3. Submitted all roommate requests by:
    January 31 for guaranteed roommate assignments in Pinecrest, Tamarack and Nîpisîy House

You can modify your responses up the deadlines, just look for the link in your Residence Account.

Failure to complete the necessary forms and make proper payment by the deadline stated in your confirmation documentation will result in the cancellation of your application and you will forfeit the application fee.


3. INFORM US OF ANY CHANGES

CHANGE YOUR APPLICATION
Any changes to your application must be requested by email to housing@ualberta.ca from your UAlberta email account. Your email must include your full name, UAlberta student ID number, preferred move-in date and your detailed request. Please note that requesting a change to your application will change your "application submitted date" to the date of the change request, and may result in your application being moved to the bottom of a waiting list.

CHANGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Please be sure to inform BOTH the Office of the Registrar AND Residence Services, in writing, of any changes to your name, address, phone number or email address. Without proper information we will be unable to contact you, which may result in cancellation of your residence application and forfeiture of the entire application fee.

CANCEL YOUR APPLICATION
If you choose to cancel your residence application, you must do so in writing. An email to housing@ualberta.ca from your UAlberta email address is preferred. Please provide us with the reason for your cancellation. If you refuse or do not respond to a housing/room offer by the deadline indicated in your Confirmation Letter (room offer), your application will automatically be cancelled and you will forfeit any fees paid.
Please review our Cancellation Policy and let us know if you have any questions before cancelling.
