Residence Form

Once you have accepted your offer to the BISC you need to complete and submit the Residence Form accessible through the online portal. You will be asked a series of questions about your lifestyle in order fo us to match you with a roommate. Alternatively you can request a single room for an additional cost.

In the online portal you will also be asked for information about:

  • any necessary accommodations (academic, dietary, etc.) - please make sure you submit the correct documentation
  • your emergency contacts
  • whether you have supplementary health insurance
  • your arrivals information
  • passport

Different bits of information are required at different times. Please check your email to see when these deadlines are. You can go into the online portal and update information on an ongoing basis, up until the relevant deadline has passed.

Room Assignments

All students paying full fees are entitled to a twin bedded standard room, shared with another student, in Bader Hall. The Bader International Study Centre will attempt to take into account preferences noted on the residence form; however we cannot guarantee requests for particular accommodation. Please note the Residence Agreement is for a space in Bader Hall, not a particular room.

For logistical reasons room assignments are not typically released until the day of arrival.

We do not have the capacity to accommodate ailments such as common allergies, asthma, migraines or anxiety that are not diagnosed as a pre-existing condition. If you require special accommodation or have concerns that are personal and unique to your situation, then please contact Student Services at This email address is being protected from spambots.
