Frequently Asked Questions

Guests at least 21 years of age who are conducting business on campus in support of the academic mission. For example: staff or faculty, visiting researchers, and those who are not otherwise qualified for Undergraduate or Graduate Housing.

You are not eligible if:

  • You are enrolled in an Undergraduate or Graduate program
  • You do not have active, on-going academic business on campus during the full duration of your requested stay

Documentation of your business on-campus must be provided to book a York Suite.

All suites are booked for one guest who is responsible for the Terms and Conditions signed at check in and the payment of fees. The guest(s) must have active business on campus for the duration of their stay. All other secondary guests/occupants must be registered by the primary guest prior to check-in. All other secondary guests/occupants must meet the occupancy criteria as described below. Families with children will be given priority for two-bedroom units.

  • Studio – One Guest
  • 1-Bedroom – One to Two Guests
  • 2-Bedroom – Three to Four Person Family (spouse/child)

Please be advised that allowing others to live in or occupy your suite outside of the processes set by York Suites is a contravention to the Terms and Conditions.

We allow a maximum stay of 4-8 months depending on the nature of your on-campus business. Guests must maintain active, on-going academic business during their stay to be eligible. For guests staying for relocation purposes, a maximum stay of 4 months is permitted.

York Suites are a temporary, short-term accommodation option to assist members of the academic community while searching for alternative long-term living arrangements. Due to the short length and temporary nature of York Suites accommodations, we do not grant requests for, or allow:

  • Stay extensions
  • Subletting of any kind (friends, relatives, Airbnb, etc.)
  • Suite transfers
  • Secondary bookings under sharer's names
  • Consecutive bookings with less than a 4-month gap between stays

Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive and the limited number of suites in our inventory, we are not able to keep a waitlist.

York Suites does not pair up guests for the purposes of sharing a suite. Primary guests may register suite-sharers such as a spouse/common-law partner and/or one or two children. If you would like to share a suite with a guest who is not an immediate family member, proof of on-campus business is required from both guests. Students eligible for Undergraduate or Graduate Housing are not eligible to stay in York Suites and may not be added as a sharer.

Guests are not permitted to sublease their suite under any circumstances. Subletting or allowing unauthorized guests to stay in your suite will result in the immediate termination of your stay. We do not permit guests to share their suite with friends or family members not listed in their Request Form, or to rent their suite to anyone.

Suite bookings are processed four months prior to the start of the term. For example, requests for January bookings are processed in September.

Guests must contact us at least 14 days prior to their scheduled check-in date to cancel their booking at no charge.

Guests who fail to arrive for their reservation or who provide less than 14 days notice will be charged the equivalent of one month’s accommodation. Cancellations must be received in writing at

For early departures, we require notice by the first day of the next chargeable month. For example, if your original check-out date is January 15th and you would like to check out January 8th, we require notice by January 1st.

Because of the limited number of apartments available, we do not allow group bookings. Group bookings can be made in our undergraduate residences between mid-May and mid-August.
