MacEwan Residence welcomes applications from students who will be not be attending MacEwan University. You may apply for the semester or semesters during which you would like to live in Residence. The application process varies for domestic (Canadian citizen or permanent resident) and international (entering Canada with a study permit or as an exchange student) students.
MacEwan Residence prioritizes applications from students attending MacEwan University. As such, Residence Services does not anticipate being able to offer spaces to new non-MacEwan applicants until the first week of August. Offers made by Residence Services are subject to availability and will be made in the order applications were received. All non-MacEwan applicants are required to submit documentation (upon offer) confirming acceptance to an accredited post secondary institution.
We are accepting applications for the upcoming semesters as follows:
|Fall 2017 (August 27–December 17, 2017)||Open until December 2017|
|Fall/Winter 2017-18 |

Be advised that MacEwan Residence does offer three different types of suites for you to choose from (bachelor, 2-bedroom, 4-bedroom). However, given the high demand for bachelor and 4-bedroom suites, priority is given to returning residents for these units. While it is not impossible for new residents to get assigned a bachelor or 4-bedroom unit, it is unlikely as there are few of these suites available and they are in high demand. Any suites remaining after returning residents have been assigned will be allocated to new residents based on the date of their application and any special accommodations requested. We encourage you to apply as early as possible to increase your chances of getting a bachelor or 4-bedroom unit.
MacEwan University began construction on the Centre for Arts and Culture building, adjacent to the Residence, in the fall of 2014. Wise and safe construction practices are followed during the course of the three-year build and every effort will be made to retain easy access for students using the residence. Students should be aware that since there will be a construction site near by, there will be noise, dust and the possibility of a temporary interruption of some services. Please be advised that there will be no compensation or reduction to your residence fees during construction or in the event of disruption to services.
