· Preference is given to students who have lived in the Victoria residence system previously and would like to return to residence.

· All outstanding balances on ACORN must be cleared by April 1, 2019 in order for your application to be considered.
· Preference is given to students who submit their applications in a timely fashion. The date stamp used on your completed application is used by the Residence Office when prioritizing room selection. 

If you are interested in living in residence we encourage you to apply in a timely fashion as preference is given to students based on the date stamp of their application (date the deposit is submitted). The deadline for application submission is March 17, 2019 or 250 returning students. Once the number of spaces for returning students are filled, remaining applicants will be placed on a waitlist on order they have applied. Please be mindful that the number of single rooms in each building determines how many returning students can be placed in the residence.

What does it mean to be on the residence waitlist?
