Residence Guarantee

We do not guarantee residence for first-year students. When offering a space in residence, Ryerson University gives priority to first-year students traveling the furthest distance away from our campus.

You can complete a residence application form once you have an active Offer of Admission to Ryerson. The first round of offers is made in mid-June. Offers continue to be made throughout the summer and school year until the waiting list is exhausted.

Deposit Required

A $50 application fee is required with your application. 

Meal Plans

Meal plans have 2 components:

  1. All-you-care-to-eat at Pitman and ILLC Dining Halls

    Meal plan dollars go towards unlimited access to eat as much or little as you like at Pitman Dining Hall or the ILLC Dining Hall. Your Ryerson OneCard grants you access to the Pitman and ILLC Dining Halls.

    You also get $450 to spend at campus eateries like the Hub Café or participating food retailers including Balzac's, Oakham Café and Ram in the Rye. Purchases are deducted from your flex dollar account in a declining balance.

  2. Residence-based meal plans

    Pitman Hall, the International Living/Learning Centre and the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex
    Pitman Hall and ILC residents are automatically enrolled in the 7-day meal plan. Students in DCC are automatically enrolled in the 5-day meal plan but can upgrade to the 7-day meal plan. If you are living in apartment-style units at Pitman Hall, you will be enrolled in the $1,000 declining balance meal plan but can choose  the 5-day or 7-day meal plan to supplement your own cooking.

    HOEM
    Students living at HOEM are encouraged to sign up for either the 7-day or 5-day meal plans, though it is not mandatory. Students can also choose to load any dollar amount onto their OneCard to spend on food at any time.
