Rates & Fees

Student rates and fees

The total cost of living in Residence includes the following fees:


Application fee

An application fee of $45 is due at the the time of application. It is non-refundable.

How to pay

The application fee can be paid:

Security deposit

After your application is approved – you will be notified via email – a security deposit of $400 is required.

The security deposit is refundable if you are not admitted to Mount Royal, or when you move out (minus any outstanding cancellation fees or damage and cleaning charges). If you are already living in Residence and you have applied to live in Residence again for an upcoming term, the security deposit carries forward.

When to pay

While there is no specific deadline to pay the security deposit, it is required for you to be assigned a room. Once a room has been assigned to you, your space in Residence will then be guaranteed. Assignment priority will be done based on the date of security deposit payment, and will continue so long as space is available. Therefore, we recommend paying the security deposit as soon as you receive the email.

Housing fees

Living in residence makes it easy to pay for housing while attending Mount Royal – one payment per semester covers your accommodation and all utilities (WiFi, cable TV, heat, water, and electricity). Installment plans are also available.

One of main goals is ensuring Residence is affordable, so our fees are remaining unchanged for the second year in a row.

West apartments/townhouses and East townhouses Per Term Academic Year*

2-bedroom $3,067 $6,134
1-bedroom $4,000 $8,000
*Academic Year rate does not cover the Winter holiday closure time period.

In addition to the housing rates listed above, there is a $30 Residence programming fee per term for Fall and Winter. Parking is not included.

When to pay

Please note that Residence fees are separate from tuition, and are usually due before tuition.

Term Fee Deadline

Student loan or scholarship

Residence Services will defer payment of Residence fees until the second Residence fee deadline (which is the same as the tuition deadline), up to the value of the student loans for the term after tuition has been subtracted. Any shortfall must be paid by the first Residence fee deadline. You can see detailed fee information in your MyMRU account under "Pay Fees."

If your student loan is not from Alberta, Student Awards and Financial Aid at Mount Royal must be aware of the loans and have entered the approved amount into your student account. Please contact them and provide them with the appropriate documentation.

See sample calculations here.

Installment plan

This option is only available if you pay the first installment by the fee deadline outlined above and if you have a contract for a minimum of a four-month term.

See the installment plan agreements for due dates and installment payment amounts. An installment plan agreement must be signed in person at the Residence Services Front Desk and witnessed by a staff member, on or before the move-in date.
