SMC Residence

Applying to the SMC Residence as a New Student (non-Freshmen)

IMPORTANT: Applications for the 2012-2013 academic year have not yet been released. They will be available in late March - early April, 2012.

The residence admission process runs continuously from March to August so the earlier you apply the better your chances of receiving an offer. However, since we often have cancellations late in the summer, it's never too late to apply.

Please note: SMC residents are expected to have an annual GPA of 2.1 or greater.

If you are a graduate student, please note that the St Michael’s Residence is primarily an undergraduate residence and generally houses only about a dozen graduate students per year.

Once I Join the Wait-List, When Will I Know?

Our applicants are admitted in three separate groups:

  1. Freshmen Students first.
  2. Returning Residents second.
  3. New Students third.

The number of rooms remaining after the first two groups have been admitted determines the number of rooms available for the third group (i.e. people like yourself). The earliest someone on our wait-list can expect to receive an offer is late May or early June.

Because the total number of applications invariably exceeds the total number of spaces available, many of those who apply may never be contacted. But all applications will be kept on file in priority sequence in case vacancies arise later in the summer - or even during the academic year.
