Housing & Residence


Our RESIDENCE FAQ PAGE includes INFORMATION on Vaccination Requirements for Residence, Isolation Protocols in Residence, and General Residence-related COVID-19 Information.


*** Vaccination Requirement for Residence ***

Students, staff, and faculty are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The university’s full policy is available online.

Individuals living in Saint Mary’s University residences are required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status in order to live in residence. All residents MUST be fully vaccinated and provide proof of that status (or have an approved exemption). Un-vaccinated individuals without exemptions will be required to vacate / leave residence. Individuals moving in to residence in January 2022 MUST be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status prior to arrival in order to move in to residence in January 2022. 


Questions regarding residence should be directed via email to residence.housing@smu.ca. We ask that you refrain from sending multiple follow-up emails. Please note as well that the Loyola Residence Desk is NOT able to answer inquiries related to applications or room assignments. Those inquiries should be directed to residence.housing@smu.ca. We appreciate your patience! Stay well.
