Living on campus

Apply early to residence — you don't need to wait for your program acceptance!

Living in a Sheridan residence is perhaps the easiest way to begin your transition to Sheridan. It will provide you with the opportunity to quickly make lasting friendships, the comfort of living at a ‘home away from home,’ and the convenience of everything you need to live and study happily. Our residence team has introduced a number of safety and cleaning protocols to support our students’ well-being.

Why live in residence?


For those with in-person components to their program, as well as Bruins student athletics, living-on campus is a great way to eliminate or reduce your daily commute. Fast-track your familiarity with campus and take advantage of everything it has to offer. You’ll be in the heart of the action at Sheridan.


Residence offers as safe space for you to connect with fellow Sheridan students and build life-long friendships. To help, the Residence Life team is always developing new and innovative programs to help build community, either in smaller groups or delivered through online platforms.


Being away at school can sometimes be tough. Living in residence will give you access to additional supports to help your transition from high school to college. We’ll make sure you always feel safe. Front-desk staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the Residence Life team collaborates with Sheridan’s Counselling Department to promote and support the delivery of virtual counselling services.

Off-campus living 

There are a number of factors to consider before deciding where to live. If it’s your first time renting, we’re here to help. There are many resources available to help you look for housing, including Places4Students.com, online classified ads and homestay options.

When living off-campus, your safety is an important factor to consider and plan for. It’s important to be aware of your safety in all situations, including your home. You need to plan for your own safety and the security of your personal belongings by taking simple precautions.
