Frequently asked questions

How is my application status updated?

Once reviews have taken place, an email will be sent to your YukonU email account with an update. Updates come in the form of Offers of Accommodation, Waitlist Notifications, Renewed Waitlist Notifications or Confirmations of Information/Interest.

Note: Should an Offer of Accommodation be made, you will have a maximum of two weeks to accept the offer by submitting your contract and paying your Hold Fee. 

What does it mean if I'm waitlisted?

A Waitlist Notification means that your application was considered in the last round of review, but no units were available to make an offer. Waitlisted applications stay in the system for the length of the academic year and are actively reviewed. At least three rounds of review are completed prior to the start of each term. Waitlists are also reviewed each time a unit is prematurely vacated.

What if need to defer or cancel my application?

 Applications can be deferred or cancelled up until an offer is made by completing the form. Deferrals can only be made to subsequent terms within the same academic year. Application Fees are non-refundable.

Can I apply as a family?

You can apply to live with your partner, caregiver and/or child/ren. A second adult co-occupant can be listed if their presence is as a secondary caregiver and is required for you to attend your program. The addition of another family member is based on approval from the Campus Housing Office is subject to an additional fee.

Can I choose my roommates?

 If requesting shared accommodation, you can request a specific roommate(s) in your application. It is recommended that the listed roommate also list you on their application to demonstrate mutual agreement of the request. Campus Housing will make their best effort to approve roommate requests.
