Thank you for your interest in Residence for the 2023 – 2024 academic year!

Whether you’re currently in Residence or living off campus, we are pleased that you are considering becoming a member of our community. While the majority of our students are in first year studies, a limited number of beds are reserved for returning students. This number could increase through the summer depending on the number of first year guaranteed students.

Applications open on February 1, 2023 at 10:00 am and close on February 15, 2023 at 4:30 pm in order to be included in the one time lottery for the first round of offers. The application will re-open in Carleton Central in the middle to end of March at which point, students who did not previously apply may join the waitlist.

We have made changes to our building assignment eligibility.  Upper year students will be eligible to apply for any building regardless of year of study.  There will no longer be a “Leeds only” application and Frontenac House will no longer be limited to students in second year studies. Please note that LEEDS (6th floor and part of 5th floor are still exclusive to Graduate students), and FRONTENAC houses will remain upper year residences (first year students won`t be assigned to these houses).

Please read the information below before you log on to Carleton Central to submit your application.

*Current ESP / IESP students wishing to apply to residence are not able to do so through Carleton Central.  Please email in order to start your application. 

Students with “Special Student” status are not eligible for residence.

The 2022 – 2023 Residence Agreement can be viewed here. The 2023-2024 Residence Agreement will be available by June 2023.
