Residence Fees

When are residence fees due?

The $525 residence deposit is due with the residence application on June 8, 2021.  The remainder of your residence fees will be split in two. The first half is due on September 30, and the second half is due on January 31, 2022.

How to pay your deposit:

Your residence deposit can be paid online, by telephone banking or by wire transfer. We do not accept cheques or credit cards.

Please note: To be considered for a spot in residence, please complete your application and submit your deposit before the deadline. Deposits can take 3-5 business days to process.

Online or Telephone Banking

You can use online or telephone banking at most major banks and trust companies. If your own bank account is not set up for online banking/telephone banking, your deposit can be paid from someone else’s account (perhaps a parent or guardian). We honour the date that payment is submitted online; please note that it may take several days to reach our office. For more information, contact your bank branch.

  • Go to the bill payment section and search Queen’s University (also listed as Queen’s University – Tuition at some financial institutions) and add as a new payee
  • Type in your Queen’s 8 -digit student number as the account number
  • Make your deposit payment of $525.00 CDN

IMPORTANT: once your payment has been accepted you will be given a confirmation number by the bank for your payment. We strongly recommend that you make note of that number and that you save or print off the confirmation message/page.

If you have any questions or run into any problems with processing your payment please contact the Queen’s University Registrar at


 Wire Transfer

Some international students may find it more convenient to send their deposit by bank wire transfer. Please note that this method can take time to process and you may be asked to trace your payment. We encourage you to make the payment well in advance of our deadline. Students should also be advised that, aside from the initial bank, the receiving bank may also impose a charge and additional handling charges on the wire transfer.  We recommend that you add an additional $15 to your payment to cover this cost so your deposit is received in full.
