Family Housing

Keyano College family housing is available to all full-time students on a first-come, first-served basis. Our family residences provide affordable housing for you, your spouse and dependents during your full-time studies at Keyano College.

Apply for housing

You must complete a Student Family Housing Application to secure accommodations.   Please read and print the Student Family Housing Checklist to ensure you have all of the required supporting documentation.

Eligibility

You and your immediate family are eligible for family housing at the student rate if:

  • You are registered as a full-time student at Keyano College
  • You have an annual family income of under $120,000
  • Any dependents living with you are under 18 years of age and live with you at least 10 months out of the year

Length of rental term

You can stay in family housing throughout the summer at the full-time student rate if you are registered to return to a full-time program in the Fall semester.

You have 14 days from the end date of your full-time program to move out of family housing. If you stay past this date, you will be charged the non-student rental rate for your location.

If you withdraw from your program or switch to part-time status, you will be back-charged at the non-student rental rate for your location.
