Guiding Principles

Diversity

We want to live in a diverse community. The selection process is intended to create a group of residents that represents the demographics of Concordia University’s undergraduate students. Our process takes into account gender identity, a representation from all faculties and schools, and the representation of racialized and Indigenous people.

  • Gender
  • Representation of racialized and Indigenous communities;
  • Representation from the different faculties and schools.

 

Equity

Applicants will have the opportunity to indicate, on their application forms, whether they are a member of one or more protected groups under the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms and/or if they’ve experienced discrimination when trying to find an apartment in the past. The selection committee will evaluate these statements and, for applications with an equal score, will favour candidates from groups that face discrimination.
 

Accessible Units

Do you need a unit that is wheelchair accessible? Students with reduced mobility often face additional challenges finding decent housing. This is why the eight studio apartments on the ground floor are reserved for the residents who most need them. If you are a student with reduced mobility, you are strongly encouraged to apply for these units, regardless of which university you attend, since accessible units are subject to their own selection process.

All applicants must follow the steps given on the APPLICATION page to submit their candidacies.
