Alumni & Friends - Ways to get involved and give back

Upper Year Applicants

Upper Year Students are:

  • Students who have completed at least one session at UTSC, even if they have never lived in residence before
  • Applicants who are returning students & are returning to residence
  • Exchange students
  • Pearson Scholar students in upper year studies

Due to a high demand for residence and the first year Residence Guarantee, residence is not guaranteed for most upper year students. However, you are encouraged to submit an application for consideration.

Applying to residence for the first time: If you have never lived in residence but are an upper year student, please contact Student Housing & Residence Life prior to logging into the StarRez Portal to ensure you have access to the correct application ("Upper Year Returner").

Upper Year applications

Fall & Winter 2022-2023: Will be available April 12 at 12pm 

Upper Year housing is not guaranteed for most students, but you may submit an application for consideration. Applications from students without an extended residence guarantee will be placed in a "Wait List" status. Please note, due to a high demand for residence, it is anticipated that offers to Upper Year students will not be made until all offers have been made to students with the First Year Guaranteee. We encourage Upper Year students on the wait list to explore alternative housing options such as off-campus rental housing as well. See our "Off-Campus Housing" section for resources.

  • Pearson Scholars: Monitor your email in June for instructions on submitting your application.
  • Inbound Exchange students: Monitor your email in mid-June for instructions on submitting your application. For information about services and programs for exchange students at the University of Toronto Scarborough campus, please contact the International Student Centre

Summer 2022 Applications: See Summer page.

Upper Year students can apply to live in residence during the Summer session between May to August.
