Housing and Transportation

Where you live and how you get to your classes are important parts of university life.

York provides the information you need to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or seek housing off campus. If you live off campus, you will also find information about public transportation options and availability of parking services to help you with your commute.


On Campus

Living in 1 of our 10 undergraduate residences – 8 residences at the Keele Campus and 2 residences at the Glendon Campus – means you are at the heart of the York University community.

Traditional-style residences offer furnished double or single rooms with common facilities for first-year students that can help ease the transition to university life.

York also has apartments for graduate students (1,250 self-contained living units). Students eligible for these apartments include graduate students, Osgoode law students, students with families and mature undergraduate students who are 21 years of age or older.

Residence Life

Residence life is about more than where you live – it is where you will find a community.

With a senior student mentor to guide you, you will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that builds on what you are learning inside the classroom while getting to know students from different programs.

Off Campus

You may decide not to live on campus during your first year, or that you would like to move out of residence after meeting future roommates. York provides some tips for finding housing in Toronto on its Off-Campus Housing Page.

Meal Plans

Whether you live in residence or off campus, finding a place to eat is made easier with the university’s meal plans, which give you access to both on- and off-campus vendors.
