Applying for Academic Year (September – April)

You can apply to the residence by filling out the online application available at www.georgebrown.ca/residence or by visiting our My Housing Portal. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. When you apply for the residence you are required to pay a $475.00 security deposit.

Spaces are limited for returning students and acceptances for these spots will be based on a lottery system. 

Applications that do not include a security deposit are considered incomplete and will not be considered for acceptance. You can apply online by filling out a residence application by selecting the Apply Now button in the top right-hand corner of the residence webpage. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Applying for Winter (January - April)

Residence applications for the Winter Term open in the first week of September. The number of spaces available for the January intake fluctuate throughout the Fall term, due to a varying number of students giving up their space in residence. We still encourage you to apply as we will try our best to accommodate students looking for housing in the Winter Academic Term. Contact us if you are interested in starting residence in January and we will be able to help you further with the application process.

Applying for Summer Semester (May - August)

Students that are interested in staying with us over the Summer are more than welcome to do so! We offer accommodations for students to live at the residence over the summer with rates that can be found at our rates and payments page. Applications for our Summer Term will open the January of that year prior to the specific Summer Semester you're interested in. You are able to apply to stay with us over the Summer here: www.georgebrown.ca/residence. Students that currently live in the residence and would like to continue residing at The George for the Summer do not need to move out, however, may be moved to another floor to ensure they are living in a community with their peers and to help us ensure all suites get thoroughly cleaned.

If I am a Summer Student and want to continue living in residence for the upcoming academic year do I need to create a new application?

YES. A new academic year always required a new application for that specific term. If you are a summer student and want to live at the residence for the 2020/21 year you must create an application and wait for acceptance from the residence. Not all summer students are guaranteed residence for the academic term as applications are accepted on a first come first serve basis and you may be placed on a waitlist.
