Graduate and Family Housing

Saint Mary’s University has apartment-style accommodations set aside specifically for graduate students and students with families.

To apply you must submit a Family & Graduate Housing Application along with a non-refundable $25 application fee.


Students who meet one or more of the following criteria are eligible to apply for Family Housing at Saint Mary's University:

  • Married and common law couples, with or without children, one or both of the spouses being a student at Saint Mary's University. Preference is given to those in full-time attendance; however, part-time students will be considered.
  • Single parents who are attending the University and whose children will be living with them at the University.
  • Students enrolled in a graduate and Ph.D. degree programs at the University.
  • Single students who have a disability which makes the more traditional style of residence unsuitable for their needs. All attempts will be made initially to house these students in Single Student Housing.
  • Saint Mary's University staff may be considered for Family Housing once all student applicants have been satisfied.

To apply, please contact the Centre for Housing & Residence Life either by email at or by phone at 902-420-5598.
