Student Housing Opportunities
Whether you’re seeking a dormitory-style residence, a luxury living experience, or a space to accommodate your family, York University has a variety of housing options to meet students’ needs.
Undergraduate Residences at Keele campus
York University’s Keele campus offers eight different undergraduate residences. Most buildings house approximately 250 students and are arranged in a traditional style with standard double and single rooms sharing common washrooms, study spaces, lounge areas and laundry facilities.
First-year undergraduate students at York University are guaranteed an offer of residence if they are admitted directly from a full-time secondary school program and apply by June 1st. Residence offers are sent out in mid-June.
York University Housing Services offers self-contained living units on the Keele campus, available to eligible graduate students, Osgoode law students, students with families and mature undergraduate students (21 years of age or older).
The apartments include amenities such as study space, libraries, food outlets and sport facilities, and offer both furnished and unfurnished options including bachelor, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. There are also some adapted units for students with accessibility needs.
QUAD Student Living (opening August 2017)
