At St. Jerome’s University, we believe that upper year students are an important part of the residence experience. They provide informal peer mentorship and leadership to our first year population and help to advance the traditions and culture of our community.
For the most up-to-date information related to the COVID-19 pandemic and how we are working to manage our residence operation, click here.
In order to be eligible for readmission to residence, a student must demonstrate that they can live cooperatively within the University community and must have cooperated with the Residence Operation as follows:
While in residence, a student must have cooperated with all residence procedures. For example, a student who has not cooperated with behavioral, disciplinary, and administrative guidelines may be denied re-admittance. Students who do not meet fee payment deadlines may also be denied re-admittance. All bills owed to the Residence must be paid in full before any application will be processed.
Each upper year student must complete a minimum of four full course credits within a regular session and be in good standing academically, as defined by the University of Waterloo. Each first year student must complete a minimum of three full course credits within a regular session and be in good academic standing. Co-op students on work term may be permitted to live in residence at the discretion of the Director, Student Affairs.
In the event that the number of upper year students wishing to return exceeds the number of vacancies determined by the Director, Student Affairs, a student's level of involvement and participation may be used as criteria for readmission.
Please note that the Director, Student Affairs may place limits on the number of returning students in order to accommodate the first year applicant pool.
During the Fall term, students will receive notice from the residence office regarding the commencement of our Upper Year Admissions process. This typically takes place during the months of October-November for the following Fall. These applications, for students that are currently living at SJU or have in previous terms applications, when available, are accessed through eRez life. Please visit eRezLife to view any open applications.
Upper Year students looking for one-term contracts (winter or spring, only), applications typically open by the middle of the term preceding.
For Upper-Year students who have not lived at SJU previously, please complete our SJU Residence Upper Year Community Interest Form and the residence office will contact you with more details about completing an application. You will not be able to complete an application if you have not completed the SJU Residence Upper Year Community Interest Form.
