Application Process | Undergraduate First Year Students

1. Confirm your interest in residence on MyRes

You must confirm your interest in residence at U of T Mississauga by completing the University’s common residence application, MyRes (login below). In order to qualify for the First-year Residence Guarantee, this step must be completed by March 31, 2019.

MyRez Login

** Please note: The MyRes Application is the option to rank your campus preference for housing (ex UTM). The supplementary UTM - Undergrad 2019-2020 application on Starportal is where you will be given the option to rank your preference of housing style at UTM (ex. Oscar Peterson Hall)**

2. Receive and accept your offer of admission to the University of Toronto

3. Complete the UTM housing application

UTM Student Housing & Residence Life will require you to complete the UTM housing application once you save your residence rankings on MyRes. This step is crucial in order for your application to be considered.  The UTM housing application login credentials will be e-mailed out individually to the email address you have registered with ACORN.  Please allow a few days from completing your ranking on MyRes to receive your login credentials. In order to qualify for the First-Year Residence Guarantee, this step must be completed and the non-refundable application fee must be paid by 5:00 p.m. (EST), on June 3, 2019, in addition to completing the MyRes Application by March 31, 2019.

The UTM Housing Application can be found here: http://starportal.utoronto.ca

4. Accepting your Offer

On June 10, 2019, once the housing application and application fee have been received, UTM Student Housing & Residence Life will send housing confirmations to eligible applicants to the email address registered with ACORN. If you submitted your application by June 3, 2019, and did not receive a housing status update by June 11, 2019, please contact UTM Student Housing & Residence Life. You will have until June 21, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. to accept your offer and submit your $1,150 acceptance fee. 

The acceptance fee is applied towards the total cost of living in residence. Residence fees are applied to the students ACORN in two instalments with the first installment due by September 30, 2019 and the second installment due by November 30, 2019. The acceptance fee (due at the time of accepting your offer of residence) is a deposit that will be applied to these charges, subject to the cancellation policy. All residence fees are subject to cancellation policy.
