Graduate Housing - York Apartments

York Apartments are managed by York University's Housing department and offers 1,250 self-contained living units to eligible graduate students, Osgoode law students and students with families (spouse/children).

The apartments are conveniently located on York's Keele Campus, within walking distance to classes and other amenities such as study spaces, libraries, food outlets and sport facilities. The four Assiniboine high-rise towers are grouped at the south edge of campus with a a community playground nearby and a daycare facility located in the nine-story Atkinson Residence. Passy Crescent, is a low-rise courtyard complex and is home to the Osgoode Chambers. Law students receive priority placement to be part of this unique living and learning community.

York Apartments offer a variety of both furnished and unfurnished apartment options including bachelor, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. There are also some adapted units for students who require wheelchair access or visual alarm.

York Apartments offer a range of options at various price points to provide students with access to accommodations that are more affordable than what's available on the local market. This helps to drive positive change for our students as we work towards UN Sustainable Development Goal #11- Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Adapted Housing

Housing Services strives to accommodate the needs of students with disabilities wishing to live on campus.

We provide a number of adapted units in our undergraduate residences and apartment-style units for wheelchair users (some are equipped with assistive devices) and several rooms are outfitted with visual alarms. Service animals and support persons are welcomed in our buildings provided they are in accordance with the health and safety and other university policies.

All students applying to live on campus will have the opportunity to indicate if they have a disability on their application and whether they have any specific accommodation needs. They are encouraged to register with Student Accessibility Services who will conduct a housing needs assessment and work closely with us to provide the most suitable housing placement and supportive living environment (subject to availability).
