Prospective Residents

Important: Due to an increase in applications, MRU cannot guarantee housing for students at this time.

Students who do not receive an initial housing offer will be placed on a waitlist and receive off-campus housing information. The University will be communicating regularly with waitlisted students and working to get offers out as soon as spaces become available.

Please note housing offers MUST be accepted within seven days of the date they are sent out. Offers will be sent to the email address provided by students in their housing application.

We are unable to accept academic year applications from non-MRU students at this time.

Top reasons to live in Residence



  1. Live close. Just a five minute walk instead of an hour (or more) commute - you're still sleeping while everyone else is stuck in traffic, leaving you more time for studies and fun.
  2. Community. Live in a community of students where friends and classmates are just a door or two away. Make friendships that last a lifetime!
  3. Live smart. Studies show that students who live on campus are more successful in school and more likely to complete their program (and we have the Valedictorians to prove it!)
  4. Hassle-free. Internet, water, heat and electricity are all included. Plus, every unit is already fully furnished.
  5. Have fun. Our great Resident Advisors (RAs) organize a ton of residence programs and activities.
  6. Resources. Easy access to campus resources like the Recreation Centre, Wellness Services and the Library - help and support are always close by.
  7. Leadership opportunities. Get involved with Residence Activities Council or as a Resident Advisor.
  8. Live and learn. The option to choose among our Living Learning Communities and share a common interest with your roommates.
  9. Made for you. Don't get locked in to a long, expensive lease - live here year-round or just for one term! Our student-friendly contracts and affordable deposits are designed with you in mind.
  10. Live it up. Residence is the total university experience - you have the rest of your life to live off campus!
