View Selection Time

November 4 – 7

Prospective tenants will be randomly assigned an apartment selection time, available through the online system.

General Apartment Selection

November 7, 4-10pm

 

Full Apartment Bookings:

Apartment Selection using the online system will take place between 4pm and 9pm, according to your assigned selection time.  During this time, you must fully fill each apartment (at least 1 person per bedroom).

Single space / random roommate bookings (The Marq)

Any applicant may book a single bedroom in a larger apartment at The Marq (pending availability) from 9-10pm.  Prior to this time, all bookings must fill the entire apartment (one person per bedroom).

 

Timeline for random roommate bookings at The Marq:

Random roommate bookings are only available at The Marq.  When booking an apartment in any other building, you must fully fill the apartment (i.e. there must be at least one person per bedroom).  (Please review Apartment Capacities and Lease Types for more information).

Apartment selection priority is given to roommate groups who can fully fill an apartment.  Towards the end of the process, we will open up the system for individual/random roommate bookings.  At this time, students can make bookings without fully filling an apartment (e.g. one person in a 2-bedroom, three roommates in a 4-bedroom, etc.).  Partial bookings as such are only available at The Marq.

Anyone interested in this process should still adhere to the timelines above for their particular category, and then can make a booking - pending availability - towards the end of the General Selection Process:

Random Roommate / Individual Booking Apartment Selection

November 7, 9-10pm

Any applicant may book a single bedroom in a larger apartment at The Marq (pending availability) from 9-10pm.  Prior to this time, all bookings must fill the entire apartment (one person per bedroom).
