How to pay for your deposit and residence fees

There are multiple ways you can pay your residence fees.

  • You can find a list of payment methods on the Registrar’s How to Pay Page.
  • Navigate to Step 3: Payment Methods, which is mid-way down the page.
  • Expand the box of the type of payment you would like to make to see further instructions.
  • You can pay your residence deposit through online banking, telephone banking, credit card or by wire transfer.
  • Do not pay the deposit through the Student Residence and Dining portal.

To be considered for a space in residence, you must complete your application and submit your deposit before the deadline:

  • First Year deposit deadline: June 3, 2024 at 4:00 pm ET
  • Upper Year deposit deadline: February 22, 2024 at 4:00 pm ET

We strongly encourage you to pay your deposit and residence fees early as it can take 3-5 business days for your payment to process. If your deposit is not posted on SOLUS by or on the deadline your application may be considered incomplete.
