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.
