Housing & Residence


Our RESIDENCE FAQ PAGE includes INFORMATION on Quarantine & Isolation Protocols in Residence, Vaccination Requirements for Residence, and General Residence-related COVID-19 Information.


*** Vaccination Requirement for Residence ***


The university has recently announced that students, staff, and faculty are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The full policy is available online.


Residents living in Saint Mary’s University residences are required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status in order to live in residence. All residents MUST be fully vaccinated and provide proof of that status (or have a verified / approved exemption) by October 15, 2021. 

Un-vaccinated individuals without exemptions will be required to vacate / leave residence as of October 16, 2021. 




Questions regarding residence should be directed via email to residence.housing@smu.ca. We ask that you refrain from sending multiple follow-up emails. Please note as well that the Loyola Residence Desk is NOT able to answer inquiries related to applications or room assignments. Those inquiries should be directed to residence.housing@smu.ca. We appreciate your patience! Stay well.




Not all learning happens in the classroom. An important part of university is experiencing life in residence. You'll get to know people from around the world in a close-knit community, while experiencing life at the heart of the university.
