Accepting applications for 2019/20   |   Application Process

Live where your life is. Get more out of your student experience when you live on campus—more time to snooze your alarm, work on assignments and hang out with friends. Your safe, comfortable, home away from home is just steps away from university resources like the library, fitness centre, health clinic and academic advisors.

When you make MacEwan Residence your home, you join a fun, friendly and vibrant community. From game nights to study sessions, there are plenty of ways to connect with fellow students and get involved.

Prepare for move-in day

Before you pick up your keys, set up your suite and meet your new neighbours, prepare for move-in day by checking tasks off your to-do list.

My university experience is so much better living in residence. I’ve made so many friends—and can wake up five minutes before class!
