Residence Information Form

After following through with your application process, you will need to complete the Residence Information Form (RIF) located in the eRezLife portal. Please note that we cannot assign you to a room until the RIF is completed.  Please use Google Chrome, Fire Fox or an Incognito window.  Safari is not compatible with the eRezLife portal.

How the RIF works

The RIF helps us match you with your ideal room and building type, room/suitemates, and accessibility services (if needed) to assure you a convenient and satisfying residence experience.

On the RIF, you can:

  • provide information regarding your lifestyle, and your preferences in regards to room/suitemates;
  • share information that may affect your room assignment or use of the meal plan;
  • indicate your room type preference other than the double traditional offered (if you are a first year student); or list your room type and building preferences (if you are an upper year student);
  • request specific roommates/suitemates.

Note that preferences or requests for special accommodations are not guaranteed. For more information about special accommodations, please click here.

How to access the RIF

You will receive an email to your Carleton email account as to when the form is open for you, with instructions on how and when to complete the form.


If you have any questions regarding your application/residence, please do not hesitate to contact us at (and not eRezLife).
