Live, learn and grow alongside your peers, and create strong and lasting friendships. Housing options transition with you as you progress through your university experience. From shared dorm-style rooms in first year, to full apartments in upper years or grad school, to family housing for families, there are options available for all students.
All first year students under the age of 21 live in single or double occupancy rooms in a first year dormitory-style residence and are guaranteed residence for the first two years of their study at the University of Calgary.
All second year students, including transfer and international students, live in in furnished two or three bedroom suite-style apartments with a shared kitchenette, bathroom, and a private bedroom.
Undergraduate students in their third year or higher of post-secondary and under the age of 27 have the option of living in furnished studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, and four bedroom units with full kitchens.
Graduate students, students that have completed an undergraduate degree or mature students (27+ years old) have the option of living in one bedroom, studio, or two bedroom apartments in Crowsnest Hall.
Residents must reside with a spouse or common-law partner (with or without children), or as a single parent living with children. Applicants must be affiliated with the university.
