These include on-campus accommodation, off-campus accommodation and homestay. Students under 18 years of age who require a custodian are encouraged to apply for homestay accommodation.
The University of Manitoba residences (on-campus accommodation)
ICM students may apply to live in University of Manitoba residences at the Fort Garry campus, just a short walk from your classes. Mary Speechly Hall, Pembina Hall, University College and St Andrew's College feature:
- furnished rooms (bed, desk, chair and bookshelf)
- meal plans
- lounges with TVs and DVD players

Students looking to live on-campus are encouraged to apply early as spaces fill up months in advance!
You can choose to live in traditional undergraduate housing or on special-interest floors with students who have similar interests. For more information about on-campus accommodation and to apply, please visit umanitoba.ca/student/housing
For many students, the opportunity to stay with a Canadian family in the local community offers special appeal. As a homestay student, you will have the chance to be a part of the family, taking part in family activities and celebrating special occasions.
All homestay families live within commuting distance of the University of Manitoba. Homestay includes three meals per day, a bedroom, internet access and local phone calls.
