Residence fees include:

  • $100 Damage Deposit. The deposit is a damage/cleaning deposit that is held on account throughout a student’s term in residence. Upon final checkout, an assessment is done of the student’s accommodation and any damages/cleaning charges will be assessed against this deposit.
  • Basic cable service. There is a cable outlet in all common living rooms and bedrooms.
  • Wireless and wired internet.
  • Telephone. Unlimited local telephone service including voicemail. Long distance phone cards are available to purchase at each complex front desk.

Residence Application Deposit

The $400.00 residence deposit includes a $25.00 non-refundable application fee. Payments can be made in person to the Finance Office, by mail, or online through students’ personal banking. If paying by cheque or money order, please print your full name and student number on the cheque or money order. If paying online, please log onto your banking website, click on Bill Payment, set Nipissing up as a payee and when it asks you for your account number enter your Nipissing student number (minus the letter).   
Please Note: Once a student has received notice of a placement, should they choose to cancel their application they will only be eligible to receive the $100 damage deposit as refund.  

RETURNING STUDENTS ONLY: To be assigned a room, a minimum of $125 must be paid by the March 21, 2022 deadline.  The remaining $275 must be paid by June 1, 2022 to hold the room.  If the full $400 is not paid by June 1, 2022, the room placement will be cancelled. Returning students who complete their application and $400 deposit AFTER June 1, 2022, will be assigned an available room on a first come first served basis.
Please Note:  The Nipissing University Finance department Policy states that,  "Payments from students with outstanding balances from current or previous terms that may be intended as future residence or tuition deposits will first be applied against the existing outstanding balance, and not treated as a deposit payment."

** When students are assigned a room placement in residence, they are responsible for the FULL PAYMENT of their residence fees for the academic year. The installment payment plan, which consists of two payments in addition to the deposit fee, is an option for students, instead of paying their full fees upfront.
