    • All required fields are completed
    • The non-refundable application fee ($30) is paid
    • Your application is submitted
  • Housing applications are prioritized by:

  • Your housing application can be submitted prior to applying for Teachers College but only students who have been accepted to Teachers College are eligible to receive housing.

  • As applicants are accepted to Teachers College and pay their tuition deposit, they enter the housing queue based on their application date and region status.  Thus, one's wait-list number may fluctuate in either direction.
