Exchange Student Housing Guarantee

Line break

Student Housing & Residence Life offers guaranteed residence for students applying for a year-long or summer exchange and a limited number of priority spaces available for one semester exchanges. 

The minimum eligibility requirements for the University of Toronto Mississauga Exchange Student housing guarantee:

  • you must have been accepted as an exchange student at the UTM campus;

  • you must be on exchange for the entire academic year (September to April);

  • you must submit your application and housing deposit before the specified undergraduate or graduate housing deadlines;

  • you must accept the terms and conditions of the Undergraduate Housing Occupancy Agreement and/or the Graduate Housing Lease/Contract Agreement;

  • you must maintain eligible student status for the duration of the on-campus residency period.

Exchange students will be placed in either First Year or Upper Year residence spaces, depending on date of application and availability of upper year spaces after Upper Year room assignments are completed in July. Should no Upper Year spaces remain for exchange students, they will be accommodated in First Year housing. All housing fees will be dictated by classification and room assignment.
