Living in Residence

If you want to live in one of the Prince of Wales Campus residences located in Charlottetown, apply for a room at the same time as you apply for a program.

You cannot be offered a residence room before you have been accepted into a program, and rooms are in high demand, so apply as soon as possible.

Complete this online Residence Application Form or download the form and print it. There is an application fee of $25, so you will need a valid Visa or MasterCard if you apply online. 

You may request a specific roommate on your residence application, and the request must be mutual. Please contact the Residence Office with any roommate requests or changes.

What Happens After You Apply

We begin sending room offers to new students who have been accepted to residence in mid to late April. This is done in the order in which the applications were received, and continues throughout the summer.

When you receive your room offer, you will need to send a $500 confirmation fee. The confirmation fee is due three weeks after you receive your room offer.

We match up roommates by August 1 and students are notified via email to the address they provided on their residence application form. We will send a questionnaire that needs to be in filled out and returned to the residence manager by July 15.

When will I find out my room assignment?

Room assignment and roommate information is typically available in early August. This information will be sent to the email account they used to apply to residence.

Moving away from home and sharing a space with someone else is a big adjustment to make. Take some time to prepare yourself by reviewing our tips for living in residence.

Our residences are available for short-term rentals from May to the end of August, ideal for tourists and conference delegates.

Atlantic Police Academy

Living in residence is mandatory for all APA programs. If you are applying for a program at the Atlantic Police Academy, you do not need to fill out a residence application.

Living Off Campus

If there are no residence beds available or if you would prefer to live off campus, we have a list of resources to help you find accommodations.
