Housing application procedures vary depending on an applicant’s academic status or term being considered. Please note that all student types, who are currently registered or who have accepted an offer of admission for the fall term and who will be registered in full time studies may apply/accept their offer online for fall residence as of 10:00am February 1st. 

The 2016 – 2017 Residence Agreement is now available.  The 2017 – 2018 Residence Agreement will be updated in the Spring of 2017.

Please determine your student status and then click on the appropriate link above for application procedures and deadlines pertaining to your application type.

Part of the application process includes completing the Residence Information Form. Your responses assist our staff with room assignment, and for students accommodated in double rooms or suites, help determine the best match for potential roommates or suitemates. Please answer these questions as honestly and accurately as possible.  You will be notified by email 48 hours after applying with instructions and the link to the system to complete the form. For all students new to Carleton University, you must first activate your Carleton cmail account in order to log on to the system.

Those students who require special accommodation for medical reasons are asked to indicate this on the Residence Information Form when applying. Students who indicate this requirement on their residence application must also submit supporting documentation by the deadline as outlined in the “Special Needs” section.

While our Department strives to fulfill all requests for special accommodation in residence, we are not in a position to guarantee all requests.

Designated Quieter Floors

In some residences we have designated quieter floors. These are designed for those students who wish to live in a quieter environment during the school year.

Substance-Free Floor

Students may apply to live on a Substance-Free Floor, where no alcohol or illicit substances are permitted or tolerated.  (The Residence Standards do not permit underage drinking or illicit substances.)

Single Gender Floor

Every year there is a least one single-gender floor in Residence.  These floors are based on demand.

All-Gender Suites:

All-gender suites are offered only to the upper year residents of Frontenac and Leeds Houses. These suites are offered throughout the buildings based on student demand. Students of different genders will have the option to share a suite, including the meal preparation and bathroom facilities, by completing the appropriate section on their Residence Information Form.

Only those who request all-gender suites will be considered for those assignments. It is assumed that all other students in those buildings prefer single-gender suites.

While we strive to provide all students with their room and floor preferences, we are not able to fulfill all requests.
