Oki / Amba'wastitch / Danit'ada / Tansi / Hello


About the Indigenous Housing ProgramYou can apply to the Indigenous Housing Program as a student who has self-identified as a First Nations, Métis, Non-status or Inuit.  You will be eligible for a subsidy on your residence, whether it is a single unit, family unit or an accessible unit.  If you are accepted into the program the coordinator will help you to connect to campus resources, to be a part of the community, and to provide advice and support. 

We offer single, affordable housing in units spread out across campus.  As part of the program you will participate in monthly event outings and meetings which highlight student success, cultural connections, resources and community building.  There are also many ways that you can volunteer for events on campus.

As residents of family units, you will be able to live on campus year-round with your children.  Campus facilities that you can access include a wellness centre and child care centre.  Family units are in a quiet area of campus as a small, family friendly community.  Family events include monthly meetings, cultural events and community building.

You can apply online for the Indigenous Housing Program as you are applying for residence.  You are eligible for the program based on academic readiness, academic and career goals, as well as financial.  As a student in residence, you also benefit from all the residence services of Mount Royal University.
