Campus Housing

Campus Housing is accepting applications for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021!

Yukon University’s priority during this time is the health and safety of its students, staff and faculty. One of the measures currently in place is having Campus Housing maintain a reduced occupancy capacity during the 2020-2021 year. As such, spaces are limited.

To request a Campus Housing Application, please provide your name, date of birth, YukonU ID number, and email address to the Campus Housing Office through our online form below. An email with the link to the online application will then be sent to the email address provided.

Covid-19 Precautions

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL NEW DOMESTIC OCCUPANTS

If you will be coming to Yukon University from out of Territory, it is important to understand all travel restrictions prior to your arrival. The most up to date information, including border restrictions and what documents are required in order to enter, can be found at yukon.ca/en/covid-19-information. Please note we also encourage students to travel with a copy of their registration confirmation in case requested.

Additionally, those who are not residents of BC, NWT or Nunavut, or who have travelled outside of those jurisdictions in the 14 days prior to entering Yukon are required to self-isolate in Whitehorse for 14 days. Students cannot isolate in Campus Housing. Individuals are responsible for arranging and covering the cost of their own self-isolation accommodation. People cannot self-isolate at a Government of Yukon campground, but can self-isolate in a hotel or similar accommodation. If you require assistance with arranging a self-isolation plan, email the Yukon Government at: covid19info@gov.yk.ca.

If you are required to self-isolate for 14 days before moving into Campus Housing, the Campus Housing Office requires a copy of your isolation plan. Please email campushousing@yukonu.ca with a copy of the isolation plan you will be providing at the border, as well as a copy of your flight or travel itinerary and accommodation booking.

The Campus Housing Office will issue you a letter confirming that you have secured accommodation for when after your isolation is complete.


IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL NEW INTERNATIONAL OCCUPANTS
International students are required to complete their 14 day isolation at the High Country Inn (the designated isolation centre in Whitehorse currently run by the Yukon Government) and must coordinate their isolation and payment through the International Office. Students can email international@yukonu.ca for assistance. The International Office will issue you a letter confirming your accommodation.

Living in Campus Housing at Ayamdigut Campus allows students to enjoy convenience and safety within a supported community. All Campus Housing buildings are located right on campus! We offer free parking with cold weather plug-ins on a first-come, first-served basis, a smoke-free facility and 24/7 security.
