Maison Application


51 Franklin Street

Please note: your application to live in the Maison Française represents your commitment to draw into the house if accepted. If you are selected and decide for whatever reason not to draw into the house, you will not be allowed to participate in regular room draw, but will be housed after all draws have been completed. We hope you understand that this measure, valid for all houses and block draws, is intended to ensure that the house is filled, and that students do not enter several draws, thus depriving other students of an opportunity to get the housing they want. For the same reasons, if you draw into the house you will be expected to honor your signed commitment for the duration of the period you applied for.

En choisissant de vivre à la Maison Française, je m'engage formellement à y parler français et à encourager les camarades qui seront mes voisins à respecter ce même engagement, qu'ils auront pris comme moi. Je me rends compte que ma bonne volonté est tout aussi importante que le niveau de mon français, et que je pourrai compter sur l'aide de l’Assistante, du ou de la R.A., et des autres résidents de la Maison. De mon côté, je pourrai aider les camarades moins avancés que moi. Je m'engage aussi à participer pleinement aux activités de la Maison et du cercle francophone. Cet engagement est pris pour la durée de la période pour laquelle j’ai posé ma candidature et ai été accepté(e).
