Apply for a room in student residence
Living in Residence is more than simply “living on campus.” It’s a fabulous way to become part of a vibrant community and take your academic success to a higher level.
Applications open on Oct. 1 and are ongoing.
Residence is optional, but highly recommended.
There are a lot of reasons to live on campus while attending MRU. You can enjoy a modern, fully-furnished, apartment-style home that is close to campus services, like the Library or doctor’s office.
Residence staff live on-site, so we can ensure a positive and safe living and learning space. Plus, Mount Royal has easy access to downtown, shopping and entertainment, but you can live in a quieter location perfect for studying.
