In order to apply to NWCC Residence you must complete and submit a Residence Application Form and include the non-refundable residence application fee of $25.00. Note:  Applications will not be processed without the application fee.

Note: From May 1-15, 2018 students requiring residence at the Smithers campus will be accomodated in a nearby hotel.  For more information please contact Roslyne Scott, Residence Coordinator at​.

Once your residence application has been processed, you will receive a letter notifying you of your status. You will either:

  1. Be offered a space in residence:
    • To confirm your space in residence, you will need to be fully registered in your program and notify the Residence Office.
    • If you want to reject this offer and cancel your application, you will need to provide written notification to the Residence Office before the date indicated on your offer letter.
    • Failure to accept/reject the offer by the indicated date will result in the cancellation of your application to residence, and may result in the loss of your application fee.
  2. Be placed on the waiting list, and offered a space when it becomes available.

Application Fee & Deposits

The application fee is non-refundable.  Once you have been accepted and confirmed into the residence, the following fees are due:

  • Residence damage deposit of $200.00* AND
  • First month (or term) rental fees (non-refundable)

*The $200.00 damage deposit may be refunded back to you upon check-out from the residence, provided that the assigned room has not incurred any damages, and issued keys have been returned. Students are fully responsible for the upkeep of their rooms, as well as common areas within the residence. Damages to the common areas of the residence may also be deducted from the damage deposit.
