Acadia guarantees first-year students a room in residence. If you are planning to live in residence, and have been offered admission to Acadia, please complete the following steps as soon as possible. We assign rooms in the order we receive the application and deposits. The sooner we receive your residence application and deposit, the better your chances of getting your residence and room choice!
Step 1: Accept your offer of admission and pay your $150 (CDN) confirmation deposit. You will find links to do this on your Application Status Page.
Step 2: Activate your Acadia Network account. Once your admission has been processed, there will be a link in the Enrolment Checklist section of your Application Status Page to set your initial password.
Step 3: Once you have activated your Acadia Network Account, a link to the Residence Application will be added to the Enrolment Checklist section of your Application Status Page. Click the link and use your Acadia Network account to log in to complete your application.
Step 4: Pay your $200 (CDN) residence deposit. Room assignments are completed based on deposit date.
If you have not yet completed the residence application, please follow the instructions below:
Roommate Requests will allow you to form a group with 1-2 other prospective students if you are interested in living in with a roommate or with two suitemates. If you do not want a roommate, you do not need to form any groups.
Please note that student rooms are not co-ed, so males cannot live in double rooms or suites with females and vice versa.
When searching for roommates by Profiles or by Details, a box can be checked to hide results that you cannot join or invite into your group.
Once you select a room and confirm your choice, that room will become unavailable for anyone else to choose. However, you cannot change your choice manually once you have confirmed a room. If you change your mind, contact Residence Life and we can either move you into another room or place you on a waitlist for your desired room if it is not currently available.
